Hi everyone!

I’m a senior in the computer science department, hailing from a small town in central Mississippi. Outside of my classes, I sing in Acapellago (Princeton’s finest no-audition acapella group), rock climb, am involved in Princeton Women in Computer Science, and am Careers Chair for the Association of Computing Machinery. I’ve also had experience working for the Writing Center and volunteering with Contact Princeton, a local suicide/crisis hotline. And as for academic interests, I love the computer science courses I’ve taken, but I have also gained quite a lot from the classes I’ve taken in gender studies, psychology, neuroscience, and linguistics.

Please feel free to introduce yourself to me at rjaiswal@princeton.edu! I’m happy to chat about anything, whether that’s related to computer science, courses in general, AB vs BSE, extracurriculars, or just plain ol’ life at Princeton.
