If you are a Wellesley College student interested in doing research with me please drop me a line. Alternatively, you can stop by during office hours; book a slot in my calendar. Students of all years and all majors are welcome. Some of my research projects don't need programming skills, thus, previous exposure to programming or CS courses is not required.
