  • Hey everyone, I'm Ana! For starters, the dog in the picture is not mine, although I do have the best cat in the world named Cream (we call her Metz). I graduated with a BS in Computer Science and minor in Mathematics from UW, while TAing for CSE142 and doing research in biocomputing and image processing. I'm excited to teach the course I've enjoyed TAing all these years and give you all an introduction to the world of code. Also, I love music and all things performing arts-related, so if you have any recommendations, let me know :)

Outside of my TAing duties, I like to bike, build computer servers, and teach maths and sciences.

  • Hello, my name is Vidhi Jain! I was born in Rajasthan, India, and moved to Seattle in 2012. I love the rainy/cold weather of Seattle. Currently, I am a sophomore pursuing a B.A. in Computer Science. In particular, I am very interested in exploring Artificial Intelligence and Data Science. This is my first quarter TAing for CSE 142. Outside of college, I enjoy watching new TV shows, spending time with my family/friends, and exploring new food places.

  • Hi I'm Andrew! I'm a sophomore studying to be a computer engineer. A couple hobbies I enjoy are running and chess, but I'm really spontaneous so I'm always down to try new things. I've lived in many places all around the world, so if you ask me where I'm from, I'll probably answer differently every time. Looking forward to making sure 142 is as fun as possible this quarter :)

  • Hi everyone! Looking forward to a great summer with y'all this quarter. We are collectively saying goodbye to CSE142, so lets make it the best we possibly can! Other than being a TA, you can find me training at the track or in the gym, dancing on a weekly basis, hiking in the mountains, or at home grinding out coding interview prep and projects!
