The places I've impacted ..
SWE / Machine Learning Intern, Nexilico Inc.
Was responsible for developing optimization algorithms, curating datasets, building deep learning models, and evaluating performance and success metrics.
Throughout my internship, I developed and prototyped ML systems, optimized data analysis and large programs, and built deep learning models. The integral aspect of my internship was that I was working on several projects at once, including parts of the company's main product. This allowed me to develop my experience in ML, as well as general software engineering.

Founder & Chair of The Chancellor Advisory Committee on Student Life
After quickly realizing UC Berkeley had not yet become inclusive of students, I founded the advisory committee. Through the committee, we have initiated:
- open and persistent prayer spaces for Muslim students
- more inclusive coursework
- began the process of a new study abroad program
- advised the chancellor and her staff on language in statements, Ramadan accommodations, etc.
My role as chair also means I facilitate coordination between administration, faculty, community members, staff and students. We meet with higher campus administration once a semester, and other lower level administrators at least biweekly.
