My name is Jiaxin Ying (应佳欣). I'm currently an MCS student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I enjoy learning Computer Science and applying the knowledge to research projects on graph algorithms and intern projects on big data. Upon graduation, I hope to work as a software engineer or machine learning engineer.
At 16, I went to Ningbo Xiaoshi High School. Ningbo is my hometown, whose name in Chinese (宁波) means peaceful waves. I enjoy her delicious local food, beautiful landscapes and comfortable lifestyle.
At 19, I started my undergraduate years at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The dual degree program at UM-SJTU Joint Institute gives me the opportunity to transfer to College of LSA, University of Michigan for my junior and senior years.
At 20, I attended the Winter University at Technical University of Berlin, taking the "Startup Crash Course: From Idea to Reality" and cultural programs and tours in Dresden, Amsterdam, Prague, etc.
