About me

I am a Pakistani, born and raised in Saudi Arabia. I love physics and math, which is why I have taken ME as my major. I like talking to new people and introducing them to new things. I lived most of my life in Saudi Arabia and went to Pakistan every summer, so I am connected to both cultures and consider both of them my home. Feel free to contact me regarding any questions you have and I’ll be looking forward to answering them! 😊

About me

I am originally from India and currently pursuing my PhD in computer science from WSU, Pullman campus, specializing in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. I am very much intrigued by how technology can help the health system to be more efficient as, after all, algorithms are opinions embedded in code. When I am not studying, I love to spend my time listening to music and singing, and guilty of sometimes indulging in binge watching series. I am also a decent cook and love to try new recipes. I love making new friends and spending time with them and helping out. I serve as an International Peer Mentor where I help the new incoming international students transition to their new life here.
