My name is Wint Yee Hnin, and I am an international student at Cornell College. I am majoring in Computer Science with minors in Mathematics and Biology. I am going to be a senior this fall, and expecting to graduate in May 2015.
I have decided to major in Computer Science because whenever a program compiles and runs correctly, it gives me a feeling of success and self-satisfaction. I am familiar with java, which is the main language taught at Cornell College, html, a little bit of python and SQL.
During the school year at Cornell College, I work as Database Services Assistant, where I create reports and queries, and Academic Technology Studio Assistant, where I help the students in using different software and technological devices. In summer 2013, I also worked as System Integation Testing Intern at Trapeze Group. I have learnt communication skills, procedures at work and familiarity with different softwares and languages from these work experiences.
During this summer 2014, I am participating in Distributed Research Experience Undergraduates (DREU), matched with Professors Amarda Shehu and Estela Blaisten Barojas from George Mason University. I am also collaborating with two other George Mason undergraduate students who participate in the same project. We are working on the flexibility of Met-Enkephalin, a naturally-occurring opioid that mediates pain. Other than this project, I have also worked on a maze-solving robot project with three other students in Human-Robot Interaction class at Cornell College.
