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. For Asmi's most recent project, she built a prototype of a wearable wrist device that tracks the heart rate of users in order to predict the heart rates at which the user could likely experience a meltdown. Using this device, effects of autism can be predicted, deferred, and potentially prevented. With this project, she advanced to the national Broadcom MASTERS in 2018, as one of the top 30 scientists in the nation. As a freshman, Asmi currently takes AP Calculus BC. She considers math her greatest passion, and she is involved in her school’s math team. Asmi was a national MATHCOUNTS finalist in May 2018 and was one of the top four mathletes in Georgia for this competition. Asmi 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. Asmi wants to pursue data science to continually experience the thrill of deriving meaningful insights from signals, and also greatly values helping others, so she hopes to combine her technological passions with her inner values. 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.
