Bio

Angeline is a senior at Mt. Hebron High School in Howard County. She is interested in Computer Science and mathematics. She is proficient in Java, C, and MATLAB and is currently teaching herself Python. She interned at the U.S. Naval Academy over the past summer as a part of the Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP), where she wrote algorithms in C and MATLAB, and wrote Portable Batch System (PBS) scripts to run on UMD College Park’s GRACE Cray Supercomputer. The internship culminated in three research papers on radar research: Long Low-PSL Binary Codes by Multi-Thread Evolutionary Search, Shared Autocorrelation Function (ACF) Symmetry, and Iterated Geometric Mean of Nth Root Matrices, which she co-authored with her mentor, Dr. Coxson. She also researched the greater horseshoe bat’s (Rhinolophus ferrumequinum) ear motion and shape and how it assisted its sonar capabilities. The bat biosonar research will be furthered by Naval Academy Midshipmen through a capstone project replicating bat ears and their motion using 3D printing and fast soft actuators. She is an active member of her school’s FIRST Robotics Team, as the leader of the scouting team and a member of the software team. She also participates in Girls Who Code, Computer Science Club, Math Honor Society, Technical Honor Society, and volunteers monthly at the World Computer Exchange, refurbishing computers to send to developing countries across the world. Angeline is a Girl Scout, currently working on her Girl Scout Gold Award titled ‘HocoStem,’ focused on increasing awareness of STEM opportunities in her community along with sharing advice from experienced professionals in a variety of STEM fields. She has reached out to STEM professionals throughout her county and is creating a site using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to share the information she collects.
