Daphna Khen, Teaching Assistant

I'm a 2nd year student majoring in Computer Science. I'm originally from Israel, but I've lived in Washington since 2001. In my free time, I like to bake, read, and watch bad TV with my roommates. I'm also a huge Trekkie, and am currently participating in two D&D campaigns.

Alana Ohno, Teaching Assistant

Hi! I am currently a third-year majoring in computer science. I was born in CA, moved to Tokyo, and came here for college. I love to draw and I love my stubborn beagle. My goal this year is to finally get my driver's license.

Jake Shoudy, Teaching Assistant

I am a second year student majoring in computer engineering and physics. I grew up in Silverdale/Bremerton area (just a downtown Seattle ferry ride away for those of you who are not Washington geography experts) and have lived in Washington my entire life. I play soccer and am an avid Seattle sports fan although the Mariners continue to lose despite my undying optimism.
