Bio

Asmi attends Milton High School, GA, and is extremely passionate about utilizing computer science to solve complex challenging problems, test theoretical ideas, and create something better, more creative, and more innovative through engineering and iteration. Last year, she built a prototype of a wearable device that tracks heartrates of autistic users to predict a meltdown in advance. Her novel approach to alleviating effects of autism was highly successful, being recognized by Georgia Public Broadcasting and the White House thorugh Broadcom MASTERS 2018. MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory even named Minor Planet “34342 Asmikumar” after her! With this project, Asmi participated in the National Junior Science and Humanities Symposium and was a Google Science Fair top 100 international finalist. Most recently, Asmi attended AI4ALL at Stanford University, a highly selective program, which helped her further her skills in programming, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. As a sophomore, Asmi currently takes Distance Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus through Georgia Tech. Asmi was a national MATHCOUNTS finalist in May 2018 and is on the Georgia ARML team, which selects the top 40 state high-school mathletes for a state math team to compete in national tournaments. Asmi plans to study computer science and technology, math, and music in the future. She is passionate about using AI to propose accessibility tech solutions – building devices and experiences for the impaired. Technology’s greatest asset is its ability to help people on a massive scale, and she will passionately work to build and code for this purpose.
