Staff (OH)

Office Hours

Office Hours are scheduled times to meet with members of the course staff. You can discuss course concepts, get assistance with specific parts of the assignments, or talk about life outside of Computer Science.

Like everything else, Office Hours will be held virtually rather than in the Allen and Gates centers. Please visit the Zoom links page for the link to a particular meeting.

Course Staff

If you have a general question that other students could potentially benefit from, please post on Ed. You can also set your questions to private or anonymous.

For logistical questions (such as extenuating circumstances and DRS accomodations), we ask that you post privately on Ed so the whole staff can help. For sensitive situations, you should feel free to email Robbie directly.

You can also schedule 1:1 time with the course staff in addition to regular Office Hours. It is particularly important to us that you feel connected in an online quarter, so please get in touch!

I’m a relatively recent transplant back to the Pacific Northwest (I grew up in NW Montana, went to college in Chicago, grad school in Pittsburgh, did my postdoc in Philadelphia, started as faculty at Georgia Tech and moved to UW). I do research in theoretical aspects of machine learning, including looking at the systemic biases which statistical techniques often exacerbate.

I am a Master’s student researching computer graphics and AI. I was born in Moscow, but have lived near Seattle since middle school. I enjoy mountaineering, photography, plotting the demise of capitalism, and running. I am very excited to both TA CSE 311 and work on upgrading its infrastructure this quarter!

Hi! I’m from Spokane, WA and like biking, hiking, and photography. With only 1 quarter left in my BS/MS, I’m bracing myself for life outside of the UW. I hope 311 changes your perspective on computer science as much as it did for me!

Hi all :) I am from Taiwan and love cooking, listening to music, and watching reality shows. It is my first quarter to be a 311 TA, but let me know if you have any questions and I’m happy to help. Looking forward to meet all of you!

Hello! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and I like baking, painting, and table tennis (though I’m not very good). I’m super excited to TA CSE 311 again and I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hi! I’m a PhD student in CSE studying the politics of “global good” technology. Outside of research and teaching, my main interest is activism, both on and off campus, and playing saxophone.
