Megan excels academically, making the Dean's Honor List her first semester of college, and is a semester ahead in her computer science studies. Megan is also actively involved in undergraduate research. She currently works for Rensselaer's Institute for Data Exploration and Applications as an Undergraduate Researcher. She works as a Front-End Software Developer for RPI's and IBM's HEALS (Health Empowerment by Analytics, Learning, and Semantics) program, which uses cognitive computing to help patients prevent and manage their health conditions, help doctors use data to construct the proper treatment for their patients, and reduce the costs of medical care nationwide. As a National Winner of NCWIT's National Aspirations in Computing Award for 2019, Megan hopes to spread her passion for computer science to other aspiring students. Outside of computer science, Megan likes to cycle, hike, and read. She is excited to support the National Girl's Collaborative Project and to help more young women be involved in computer science.
