Biography

Hi! My name is Riva and I am a computer science and statistics student with a passion in learning as much as I can and applying that into projects that will improve the human condition. Throughout my studies, I have been fortunate enough to travel to Nepal and South Korea, learning about different cultures and participating in research programs. I am always looking for opportunities to travel overseas and seeing how technology impacts cultures in different ways. Other than study, I like to get involved in university clubs, to enhance my student experience and learn from like-minded people. My interests involve data science, machine learning, database management and software programming.

Skills & Expertise

  • Computer programming (C#, Python, C, Java)
  • Database management (SQL)
  • Teaching and public speaking
  • Leadership
  • Time management

The best advice I’ve been given is to be in the world, but not of the world.
