i! My name's Ally, I'm 20 years old, and I live in the Chicago Area. Starting 2019, I am an undergraduate student at DePaul University, majoring in Computer Science (concentration in Software Development). As of July 2019, I am studying machine learning, computer vision, and data mining at the Data Science Center of DePaul University and I am a member of the Visual Informatics and Data Analytics Group. Since February 2020, I work as a part-time Undergraduate Research Assistant at DePaul's Data Science Center; in addition, starting October 2020, I am the Student Assistant for the Associate Provost for Research.

Some of my hobbies include coding, drawing, film making/editing, photography, and tennis. I started drawing/painting when I was about 6 years old and have been doing it ever since. My work was featured at the Naperville Woman's Club's Art Fair and in local school's art fairs throughout all 4 years of high school. I was a member of the Naperville Fine Art League from 2015 to 2018 and of Arts DuPage Foundation from 2016-2019.

Girls Who Code

It was an exciting experience for me to participate in the Girls Who Code program in 2016, to make new friends and improve my coding skills. It was a pleasure to work with Trisha, Grace and all the girls on our projects!
