Two female graduate students in the MIT Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science design and teach the Women's Technology Program classes in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering


Alice Wu
Electrical Engineering Instructor
Hometown: Milpitas, CA


Hey all! I’m a rising third year PhD student in electrical engineering at MIT, where I research organic solar cells. Outside of research, I’m usually working on at least one side project in international development/co-design. Some of the countries that I’ve had projects in are Morocco, Kenya, India, and Colombia, and I’m always happy to share stories. In my free time, I enjoy cooking/baking, chilling with my cat, and traveling to see friends. I’m excited to get to you know all this summer and build some cool EE projects!




Kylie Ying
Computer Science Instructor

Hometown: Rockville, MD


Hi! I just completed my MEng at MIT, researching applications of machine learning to high-energy particle physics. As an undergrad, I double majored in 6-2 (EECS) and 8 (physics). In my free time, I enjoy coding personal projects and creating YouTube videos, which I hope will inspire more people to pursue STEM! Other things I like include: dogs, sunsets, ice skating, poker, crypto, and EDM. I’m excited to meet everyone and introduce you all to the wonderful world of Python :)

Tutors and Program Facilitator

Tutors assist the WTP-EECS Instructors in the online classrooms and are eager to help students with homework and projects.

The Program Faciitator assits the Director with overall WTP-EECS operations and activities.

Tutors and the Program Facilitator are all current female MIT or Wellesley students or recent graduates. They are great sources of information about about their college experiences and majors. They help build a supportive, collaborative community and lead fun social activities outside of class time.


Adeena Khan
Computer Science Tutor

MIT Class of 2024
Major: Chemical Engineering
Hometown: Round Rock, TX

Hi everyone! I'm a rising junior at MIT majoring in chemical engineering. I'm really into video games and am a huge fan of The Legend of Zelda, Ace Attorney, and Fire Emblem Series (although I will play any RPG or mystery/puzzle-based game)! Other than gaming I also really like to dance, bake, watch rom-coms, and solve logic puzzles. I can't wait to meet you all during WTP! :)


Chloe Shi
Electrical Engineering Tutor

Wellesley College
Major: Applied Physics; Minor: Astronomy
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Hey everyone— I’m a student at Wellesley College (about 45 minutes from MIT) and my research focuses on different instrumentation for space sciences. In my free time I like to play video games with fellow EE tutor Jen, sketch and paint, and chase around my sister's dogs. This will be my second year tutoring for WTP! My favorite part of the program is seeing everyone use different unexpected metaphors to explain electronics concepts :D Excited to meet you all soon!


Gabriela Carcasson
Computer Science

MIT Class of 2023
Major: Mathematics; Minor: Spanish
Hometown: Fort Collins, CO


Hi everyone! I'm a rising senior majoring in mathematics and minoring in Spanish. I hope to teach high school math and computer science after graduation and eventually earn a Ph.D. in curriculum development or mathematics education. I was a WTP-ME student when I was in high school, and that's how I fell in love with MIT! I enjoy playing piano, painting/drawing, and baking in my free time, and I will spend my weekends during WTP hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park near my home in Fort Collins, CO. I'm so excited to meet all of you!


Isabella Struckman
Program Facilitator

MIT Class of 2023
Major: Computer Science & Engineering
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Hello! I'm very excited to be a part of WTP 2022 with you. I'm involved in SaveTFP (host fun, creative weekend events for students), MIT Outing Club (hikes and outdoorsy folk), and other cool stuff like spelunking and student teaching.




Reagan Zimmerman
Electrical Engineering Tutor

MIT Class of 2022
Majors: Electrical Engineering and Political Science
Hometown: Pewaukee, WI


Hi, I just graduated from MIT with a double major in 6-1 (Electrical Engineering) and 17 (Political Science). In the fall, I'll be working in Product Development at Ford Motor Company. In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, cooking, and spending time with friends and family.




Zoe Gotthold
Computer Science Tutor

MIT Class of 2024
Major: Computer Science and Microbiology
Hometown: Richland, WA


Hello y’all! My name is Zoe and I’m a rising Junior at MIT, studying biology and computer science. My major interest is in infectious disease, and my goal is to work as a virologist, or maybe as a biology teacher! In my free time, I really enjoy playing the bassoon, watching TV (some of my recent favorites include Bojack Horseman and Brooklyn 99), and getting various caffeinated drinks with my friends. Additionally, I am the penguin girl, and would love to talk about anything penguin-related with anyone!
