Hello! My name is Czarina Lao and I received my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with the class of 2018. While I've already started taking graduate coursework during my undergraduate years, I'm officially beginning my Master of Engineering in EECS degree at MIT in the Fall of 2018, with an expected graduation of June 2019.

I love programming, but I also enjoy the software design process, including carefully thinking about my work from the user's perspective. My interests include software design, computer systems engineering, and web development. I've also dabbled in machine learning and natural language processing.

Outside of class, I'm currently heading the Underground Guide of MIT HKN and am one of the Corporate Relations directors of xFair 2019 as part of MIT TBP (Tau Beta Pi). I've also been involved with the Southeast Asian Service Leaderhip Network and the MIT Chapter of IEEE/ACM.
