My name is Jennifer Tran. I am a student attending the University of California, San Diego studying Computer Science in the department of Computer Science and Engineering. I will be a Junior in the Fall of 2015 and I plan on graduating during the Spring of 2017. I received a grant from the Center Research Association's Distributed Research Experience for Undergraduates Program and am currently doing research in the Informatics Department at UC Irvine under Gillian Hayes. I also work at the Non-Volatile Systems Laboratory on the Gadgetron Team at UCSD under Steven Swanson.

When I'm not doing research, I am spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy hiking with my triplet sisters and my friends. I am interested in the issue of women and minorities in Computer Science and, in the Fall of 2013, I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from UCSD's Women in Computing to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in Computing.
