ABOUT ME

Hi! I'm Annie Liu (she/her), a first year undergrad at MIT pursuing a major in computer science with a minor in creative writing. My interests lie in understanding ourselves better and using the tools we have to solve problems we face, whether it's through books or technology. Coding and writing, in my eyes, are extremely similar: Through the lines of code I write, I’m communicating with computers the same way I communicate with the people around me. The only difference is, instead of English, I’m using Python (or Java, etc). Aside from coding and writing, I enjoy reading, running, listening to music, playing card / board games, and spending time with friends.

PROJECTS

Creative Learning Tool
MIT Media Lab UROP (Lifelong Kindergarten Group)

A creative learning tool to help teachers and educators work and learn more creatively and interactively, since current tools do not address the issues that they face.

Open Streets
TechTogether Boston 2020 Hackathon Winner (MLH Best Use of MongoDB)

A crowdsourcing platform that promotes more clean, connected, and collaborative communities by allowing users to post issues they notice in their surrounding locations, share details about the assistance that may be required, and automatically update the addresses and dates of when the posts were made.

Machine Learning Research
Regeneron STS 2019 Scholar

A machine learning model for protein subcellular localization predictions to help identify drug targets and contribute to drug repurposing efforts for many protein dysfunctional diseases, including cancer, asthma, and Alzheimer's.
