Hi, I'm Georgia Shay.

I'm an Electrical Engineering and Computer Science student studying at MIT. I have experience with frontend and backend development, databases, data processing, and microcontrollers. In my free time, I've worked on various computer science and engineering-related projects both with groups and as an individual. My interests range from processors to algorithms, and I'm always excited to learn something new!
