Hi! I am a passionate DMD student with a robust background in game design, immersive technology, and computer science. I have great interest in discrete mathematics, web development, and algorithms. I am a former USACO Platinum competitor, and an active open source developer. My hobbies are playing the guitar, watching and playing basketball, and collecting records.

Ximing Luo

Hello! I’m Ximing Luo, a sophomore in Digital Media Design and pursuing a second major in Economics. My academic journey is enriched as an SNF Paideia Fellow and by my research in Augmented Reality with Dr. Rajapakse. My experience extends globally; this summer, I worked as an Artificial Intelligence intern in Vietnam through the Global Research & Internship Program, and I explored academic themes in a Penn Global Seminar that took me to Australia. I also contribute to the tech community as the Director of Marketing for FemmeHacks, and in Women in Computer Science, I was Freshman Representative last year and will serve as Director of Education this year. I am also actively involved in SIGGRAPH, aKDPhi, and several Wharton clubs. As an Orientation Peer Advisor, I am excited to help new students find their place at Penn, ensuring their first year is welcoming and vibrant.

Suhani Patel

I’m a rising junior majoring in BE & CIS, following my passion for bridging the gap between medicine and computers. Being an international student from India, I appreciate the opportunities at Penn, from participating in research on nanoparticle drug delivery for cancer treatment and analyzing the causes of Alzheimer’s beginning freshman year, to participating in hackathons and NYC office visits. I’m involved in different student clubs: treasurer for ADAPT where we build medical devices and prosthetics, project lead at WUHC leading the development of a website that for medical and biological literacy. I’ve been a TA for physics, a tutor at the Weingarten Center, and an RA at Quad. I volunteer as a CS teacher as part of the Microsoft TEALS program. I intend to pursue an MBA after gaining industry experience. In my free time, I like to bake (my fav chocolate orange cake), paint (mostly coffee paintings), and read novels. Fun fact – I am fluent in 4 languages and a black belt in karate!

Jason Mathew

Hey! My name is Jason Mathew and I’m an incoming sophomore majoring in MEAM and minoring in CIS. I like playing basketball/spikeball, singing, and working with my hands. Over my freshman year, I’ve learned a lot about MEAM and about Penn in general, and would love to share what I’ve learned! Outside of classes, I’m on the mechanical team for Penn Electric Racing, where we build a Formula 1 car every year and race it. I’m also a part of Keynotes A Cappella, a co-ed a cappella group that sings a variety of genres from R&B to rock. If you’re interested in PER, a cappella, or have questions about Penn, feel free to reach out! Before coming to Penn, I had a hard time deciding what to major in, so if that is also something you’re struggling with, I can help with that too. 🙂

Abdullah Goher

Hello! I’m Abdullah, an international student from Pakistan currently pursuing a degree in Digital Media Design. My passion lies in digital arts, whether I’m working with graphics libraries or manipulating software directly. This summer, I’ll be diving deep into hardware programming through a collaboration with the Wietzman School of Design, while also exploring front-end web development independently. Beyond academics, I’m an avid gamer, particularly enjoying multiplayer games like FIFA and battle royales. As a huge action anime enthusiast, I was captivated by “Attack on Titan” and am eagerly awaiting the new season of “Jujutsu Kaisen.” To maintain a healthy lifestyle, I strive to be a gym enthusiast, with a personal goal of bench pressing 225 pounds one day. I cannot wait to meet my Class of 2028 cohorts. Have a great summer meanwhile!

This is my first year being an OPA, and I’m super excited to meet all of you! Outside of class, I play the viola in the Penn Symphony Orchestra, volunteer and do clinical research at CHOP, and help with test writing and outreach in Science Olympiad at Penn. Other than that, I enjoy sports photography with the Daily Pennsylvanian, making jewelry, and exploring center city. I can’t wait to help you all learn about Penn Engineering and all the awesome things you can get involved in on campus!

Hello new Penngineers! My name is Jordyn and I’m from Baltimore, Maryland. I’m a rising senior in bioengineering (and GSWS and premed!). I love making digital art and Spotify playlists, so definitely ask me about those. At Penn, I’m in A.O.E.
