Bio

Elizabeth is a senior at West Windsor High School South, and is extremely passionate in computer science and engineering. She is a leader on the school's robotics team, a First Lego League mentor, and is 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 is taking computer science courses at Princeton University through dual enrollment. 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 80% of the high schoolers in her school district, and in its 2nd year accumulated over 3,000 users and is looking to expand. In addition to making apps, Elizabeth wants to expand her skills in all areas of engineering and computer science. Two years ago 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). Last summer she was an NJ Engineering Governor's School Scholar, where she performed research in bipedal robotics. 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, participated in Model United Nations, and loves to travel. She wants to double major in Computer Science and business, and her dream schools include Princeton, Stanford, and Columbia.
