Kristine Yip

Hello and welcome to Penn! My name is Kristine and I’m a rising sophomore studying computer engineering. Some of my interests include entrepreneurship, recreational sports, and studying abroad. During my freshman year, I was a part of the Penn Aerospace Club and I worked as a fellow at an early-stage startup through Penn’s Venture Initiation Program. I was born and raised in New York City, but I love traveling and experiencing different environments and new scenery; in fact, I’m planning on studying abroad for a semester in either Europe or Australia next year. Outside of classes and academics, I enjoy playing recreational tennis, going on early-morning runs along the Schuykill River (I’m currently training for my second half marathon!), and just taking long walks with friends across campus. Once again, congratulations and welcome to Penn!

Ryann Joseph

My name is Ryann Joseph and I am a sophomore bioengineering student. I am from Columbus, Ohio, and in high school I was in marching band (drum major), basketball cheerleading, and girls lacrosse.
Here at Penn, I am on the club lacrosse team, involved with SWE, PHINS, and I am part of a research bioengineering lab into drug delivery.
Some of my favorites are Kit Kats, Brooklyn 99, and Taylor Swift!

Justina Lam

Hi, I’m Justina!

I’m majoring in Computer Science and particularly interested in machine learning, NLP, neural networks, bioinformatics, and biomedical applications of computer science, among other things. During the semester, I am doing research with a lab that focuses on genomic analysis for Alzheimer’s research, and this summer, I’m working with machine learning and NLP for epilepsy research, through PURM.

I love music, boba, coffee, Netflix, exploring the engineering buildings for new study spots, and walking down Locust on warm days. I’m also on Penn’s fencing team, as well as the Penn Aerospace high-altitude balloon team, and I enjoy running.

I’m excited to meet you and can’t wait for the fall semester!

Eddy Yang

Hi! My name is Eddy, and I am a rising Junior studying Computer Engineering and pursuing an Engineering Entrepreneurship Minor. Before coming to Philadelphia, I also lived in Los Angeles, Shanghai, Sydney, and Beijing! For my main extra-curriculars at Penn, I’m on Penn Electric Racing, and a member of the ESE Undergraduate Advisory Board. I’m a tennis player, and also a huge sports fan in general. Some of my other favourite sports include basketball, soccer, and Formula 1. I also like travelling, food, and watching YouTube videos in my spare time.

Emma Dreispiel

Hi new Penngineers! My name is Emma, I’m from Colombia and Argentina, and I’m studying CBE with a minor in Comparative Literature. I dance salsa and tango in my free time and I’m a member of Alpha Omega Epsilon. I enjoy reading fantasy novels, watching anime and Studio Ghibli films, and trying all the coffee shops around Philly. I’m interested in pharmaceutical research and hoping to pursue this concentration within CBE. I’m very excited to meet all of you!

Aboudi Babiker

Hey guys, I am Aboudi, a rising senior in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I am originally from Sudan and will be spending this summer in Atlanta consulting for Bain & Company. On campus, I was the former president of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the current president of the National Society of Black Engineers. I also serve as a teaching assistant in the chemistry department for the intro general chemistry lectures. Outside of school, I love to follow sports (soccer especially), explore Philadelphia, and watch movies whenever I can.
