Hey hi hello! I'm a third-year majoring in EECS and minoring in Astrophysics, and this is my fifth semester on EECS 16A/B staff. I'm super interested in educational accessibility and applications of linear algebra, especially in physics and astronomy. I drink a lot more coffee than I probably should, and my socks have cats on them roughly half the time. Email me about anything anytime -- so excited for the semester ahead!

Hi everyone! I am Priyans, a CS senior from India. I really enjoy teaching, especially 16B labs. I am very interested in systems programming and it's intersection with data, especially parallel programming. I am also interested in Machine Learning. I work in the RISE lab on the NumS project, which is a distributed-computing based NumPy-like library. I have recently developed interest in cooking and baking, but I am yet to create something magical. I like going on runs (more like walks lol) in Berkeley. I absolutely love the food at Gypsy's and Seniore's. Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me! It's my last semester teaching 16B and I want to make it the best for all of you. See you all in lab soon. :)

I love trying new food. I often check news in the poster wall in the Sather Gate and the Mofitt Library. In my opinion, my hometown Seoul is the coolest place. Lots of food to enjoy, and also safe at night even if you are outside. I like the transport layer because it is where the most of the algorithmic developments in internet are happening, and testing a new algorithm is usually free while testing new hardware can be expensive.
