Annika Eisner

Hi! My name is Annika Eisner, and I’m a masters student in bioengineering. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in bioengineering in May, and this year I am submatriculating through the accelerated masters program. I’ve really enjoyed my time at Penn and have gotten involved in a variety of organizations, including Penn Reads Book Club and ADAPT, a medical device design club. I’ve also been a teaching assistant for CIS 1200 for the past few years, and have really enjoyed that. In my free time, I like reading, writing, and traveling. Welcome to Penn Engineering and I look forward to getting to know you!

Makayla Cheng

Hi everyone! I’m Makayla, an incoming sophomore studying bioengineering. I’m originally from Los Angeles, CA, and I have interests in medtech, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and medical devices. In the future, I hope to work in industry or do research, but I’m still exploring my interests! I currently work in a bioengineering lab where I focus my research on disease detection and medical devices. I currently am a part of a few engineering clubs, such as SWE, Access Engineering, and USABE. I am also involved in Wharton Undergraduate Healthcare Club, WUFFA, and AWE. In my free time, I love reading, swimming, running, listening to music, and trying new foods. A fun fact about me is I’m a huge beach person, and I love watching the sunsets on the beach. I’m super excited to get to know all of you!

Madeline Port

Hi! I’m Madeline Port and I’m a rising sophomore from Richmond, Virginia. My majors are Chemistry and MSE with a concentration in nanotechnology. This summer, I am working in Dr. Karen Winey’s lab researching the thermal history of fluorine-free polymers for use in fuel cells. Outside of my classes at Penn, I am part of MSE society and I am the assistant performance director of Penn Ballet, which puts on a show every semester. In my free time, I love exploring food and shopping in Philly and trying random activities like ice skating and climbing with my friends. I love the arts, so I’ve gone to see student groups perform as well as the Philadelphia Ballet and Philadelphia Orchestra. I haven’t taken any MSE courses yet, but I am happy to talk about my experiences in chem, math, physics, and electives here. I am excited to meet everyone in my group!

Sem Ferid

Hi, I’m Sem Ferid, a junior CIS major with many interests! I have a love for music and the violin, which I’ve played for seven years. Besides music, I am an aspiring chef in my own kitchen as cooking has become a delightful outlet for me to try out new recipes and create delicious meals. As an Ethiopian, I have a deep-rooted connection to my culture and a love for traveling and adventures. When I’m not engrossed in coding and analyzing data, I find peace in the gym, lifting weights, and on the basketball court with friends. I am thrilled to continue being an OPA and can’t wait to meet everyone!

Xiang Chen

Hello! I’m Xiang, and I am a junior in CIS with a concentration AI. In my free time, I like to lie around and play video games, but of course work comes first right? Big fan of nature, and was a member of Penn Green. Currently I’m the software lead of Penn Jet Propulsion so it’s cool to see my code at work. I really hate making websites though, so I’m pursuing Product Management or Data Science. Glad to meet you!

Shreya Bathula

Hi! My name is Shreya Bathula. I have completed four years of undergrad at Penn and am now taking a pre-health post-bacc program at Penn. I am currently involved in research with the Hwa Lab, which is focused on using linguistics to formulate an unbiased hearing test depending on a person’s native language. My hobbies consist of reading webtoons/manhwa/manga, playing otome games, and watching K-dramas and C-dramas. I am also interested in writing YA novels and have taken a course on this topic at Penn, as well as on comics. Please feel free to ask any questions you have about me. I am happy to especially give more information about my club and research. I can’t wait to meet all of you!
