Mike Zhou

Hi, my name is Mike and I’ll be a senior this fall studying computer science and math. Here at Penn, I’m involved in undergraduate research and TAing, and am part of the CIS accelerated masters program. Outside of academics, I’m a member of various clubs and societies, like Full Measure A Capella and Penn Electric Racing, and love travelling – indeed, I am currently on a semester abroad as I write this. When I’m not immersed in my studies or performing, you might find me bouldering at callowhill or crafting my next Instagram dessert post (@zhou.bakes).

Kate Paik

Hi! My name is Kate and I’m going to be Junior this fall. I’m from a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. I attended a public high school and took AP classes in HS. As a CBE major, I’m specifically interested in the biotech and pharma field. My hobbies are to ski, play video games, guitar, and paint. On campus, I’m involved with research, a publication club that makes magazines for kids, the Society of Women Engineers, and Penn Undergraduate Biotech Society. I am also really involved in my church community where we have weekly small groups! I am huge foodie and love exploring good restaurants in Philly!

Saw Nwe

Hi everyone! I am Saw, and I am an incoming sophomore in bioengineering and pursuing a pre-med path. I grew up in Myanmar (Burma) and moved to San Francisco in 2018 before coming to Penn. I have previously worked on asthma research during my high school summers where I developed strong interests in pulmonology and bioengineering that I now spend most of my time on research at the Brenner Lab here at Penn, where I study inflammation associated with lipid nanoparticles in acute critical illnesses. This summer, I am working on 3D Bioprinting research abroad in Aachen, Germany as part of the GRIP program. I also volunteer regularly on campus such as at Penn Relays, Penn Science Olympiad, and at community screening events with Penn KDSAP. In my free time, I like to hang out with my friends, catch up on the latest MARVEL movies, go to the gym, and play soccer at Penn Park. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime with any questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you all soon!

Jessica Liang

Hi everyone! My name is Jessica, and I’m a rising junior from Dallas, Texas! I’m majoring in Computer Science with an interest in machine learning research. This summer I will be participating in an NSF Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at CMU. On campus, I am a board member for Society of Women Engineers and a member of Alpha Omega Epsilon (a STEM sorority). I was also previously a violinist in Penn Symphony Orchestra. In my free time I love playing violin, listening to Taylor Swift, and watching The Big Bang Theory or Friends!

Shruti Agarwal

Hey! I’m Shruti Agarwal, an incoming junior studying computer science and engineering entrepreneurship. During my time at Penn, I’ve had the opportunity to get involved in various aspects of campus life, ranging from academic pursuits like teaching/research, alongside student-oriented communities, like Theta Tau (pre-professional engineering frat!) and Penn’s South Asian Society. Outside of school, I’m always trying to learn something new; my current fixations are running, photography, traveling, crocheting, and cooking (although, I can’t say I’m very good yet)! I’m very passionate about being a resource for underclassmen students, especially when it comes to finding your place at Penn (we’ve all been there!), so please feel free to reach out to me whenever. Really looking forward to meeting you all!

Jennifer Li

I’m Jennifer, and I’m so excited to meet you! I’m from St. Louis, MO (yay midwest), and I’m majoring in bioengineering. My academic and research interests are in immune engineering, especially immunotherapies. I also enjoy playing guitar, violin and tennis, and in my free time, I love to try new cafes in Philly.
