I’m Khoa, a senior at Cal majoring in Computer Science. I also like Math, Stats, Econ, and Industrial Engineering, and have taken some classes in these fields as my electives. I love to build stuff, learn something new, and
git push on a regular basis.
I’m most interested in Natural Language Processing, Data Mining, Machine Learning, and their applications in the real world. I got my feet wet in NLP from my internship at Ocean Tomo, LLC in Summer 2013, and is dabbling in ML through various MOOCs in my free time. Currently I’m a research apprentice working with Professor Heather Haveman on mining information from the Bitcoin and vintage wine market data.
I also have a strong passion for teaching, even though going to grad school is not one of my immediate goals after graduation. Before I graduate :(, I’m hoping to TA for a class at Berkeley and share my passion for Computer Science with other students.
Shoot me an email at
khoatran (at) berkeley (dot) edu, and let’s chat! :D
I do exist outside of the internet - I play tennis, racquetball, lift (or at least try to), cook, and read young-adult novels (I have a strong obsession with dystopian novels).
Enjoy your stay on my webpage!
