San Francisco, CA ยท me (at) yuyangzhong.com

I am currently the Program Manager for Coding It Forward, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit supporting and uplifting early career public interest technologists.

I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2021 with a degree in psychology and data science. I am an alum of the CIF Civic Digital Fellowship during summer 2021, where I worked as a Data Science Fellow at the NIH Office of AIDS Research. I then spent some time as a computational social science researcher at the University of Michigan, where I investigated socio-cultural phenomena scaled with computational methods.

I enjoy teaching and mentoring, especially in ways to democratize data science education for all. In my free time, find me scouting out the newest and freshest bites in town and avidly searching for the next best boba.
