What I Study

Hi, I'm Katie. I'm a 21-year-old rising senior at Cornell University, majoring in Operations Research & Information Engineering (ORIE) and minoring in Computer Science (CS). On the side, I've taken select coursework in Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Information Science (ISST). I'm from Dallas, Texas and graduated from Allen High School in 2017.

On campus, I'm an autopilot software developer on CUAir, the Executive Director of BigRed//Hacks, and the Head of Professional Development for Alpha Omega Epsilon. I am currently the Marketing/Design Director for IvyHacks and the Vice President of the Cornell Entrepreneurship Club (launching Fall 2020). I'm an Irwin and Joan Jacobs Scholar in the College of Engineering, and the Cornell Ambassador for Sequoia Capital.


My hobbies include bullet journaling (@katiedocuments), flying/building drones, and figure skating. I am obsessed with pandas, corgis, samoyeds, boba, Ford Mustangs, and watermelon. Some of my favorite TV shows include Billions, Rick and Morty, Arrow, and Black Mirror. My Myers-Briggs type indicator is ENTJ, and my Enneagram type indicator is 3w2. I plan on reading 30-50 books in 2020 (Goodreads), so I'm always down for non-fiction or sci-fi recommendations.

I love national parks! So far, I've been to 20 of them: JiuZhai Valley (China), Hot Springs, Grand Canyon, Gateway Arch, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Jasper (Canada), Banff (Canada), Yoho (Canada), Glacier (Canada), Mount Revelstoke (Canada), Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, White Sands, Rocky Mountains, and Great Sand Dunes. I have driven through the entire southern border of the United States, with roadtrips from Texas to Florida, California, Wyoming, Utah/Arizona, and from New York to Texas (thanks quarantine). Always looking to add new nature spots to my bucketlist :)
