Bio

Elizabeth is a junior at West Windsor High School South, and is extremely passionate in computer science and engineering. She is the team developer leader on the school's robotics team, a First Lego League mentor, and an avid engineering hobbyist. Some of her independent projects include building a quadcopter, making Arduino controlled robots, and building her own 3D printer. She self taught herself programming from when she was in elementary school, and plans to take a computer science course at Princeton University her senior year of high school. Right now Elizabeth is part of Appaneer, an app studio that she co-founded with two of her classmates, and has two apps in the app store (with another one coming soon!). One app allows students to share their schedules with each other and is called Class Reveal, the other is a game called Overflow. In fact, Class Reveal has been downloaded and used by more that 2/3 of the high schoolers in her school district. In addition to making apps, Elizabeth wants to expand her skills in all areas of engineering and computer science. This past year Elizabeth interned in a lab at Princeton University's MAE department where she used Zemax and Matlab to design a camera lens that uses a Tunable Acoustic Gradient Lens (TAG lens). She is also an avid hackathoner, and has attended a couple hackathons to date, winning awards at each with her team. Apart from her technical aspirations, she is also a Varsity runner for her school in cross country, Winter track, and Spring track teams, and participates in Model United Nations. She wants to double major in Computer Science and business, and her dream schools include Princeton, Stanford, and Columbia.
