Hi, I’m Christine and I’ll be one of your instructors this summer! In my free time, I enjoy playing video and board games, solving puzzles, singing, and listening to and playing music. I decided to become a CS major after taking this course, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I look forward to meeting you, and welcome to CS 61BL!
Hey! Call me Alex. I enjoy introspecting, consuming/creating good stories, solving puzzles, and jamming on Spotify. Since childhood, one of my biggest dreams has been to have the ability to fly, but I might have to settle for telekinesis or teleportation since that’s very unlikely.
Hiya, I’m Angela! When I’m not doing school related things, I’m hanging out with PiE folks, spending time with my fellowship, eating most kinds of food, or trying to work out. I had a wonderful two semesters TAing for 61A (any Fall 2017/Summer 2017 students out there???), and I’m super excited to be teaching 61BL this summer. I also love listening to different kinds of music (introduce me to something!) and reading new books (hmu for a recommendation), and talking about all things related to education. I’m pretty much always on Northside during the usual school year, and I figure it’ll be that way during the summer :’) Outside of 61BL, I’ll be TAing for 375 and (hopefully) practicing some instruments I haven’t played since jazz band in high school. See you in lab!
Hey there! I’m Catherine, and I’m from Orange County and will soon be a third year studying computer science.

Hey folks! I’m a senior CS major from Florida, mainly interested in theory and security. When I’m not doing 61B, I’m probably playing some nintendo game from the 90’s, “playing” guitar, or DHCP-spoofing my friends. 61B changed my entire college experience (for the better 👌) so I can’t wait to meet you all!
Hello everyone! I’m a third year EECS major from Irvine, CA. I enjoy reading, playing piano, writing music, and sleeping in my free time. 61B was the class that helped me decide my major, and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
Last semester I was procrastinating by online shopping on this hipster lifestyle site I’m a fan of and they were selling harmonicas and I was like “that’s the most hipster thing I’ve ever seen” but then I thought about it and was like “wait it’d be cool to learn the harmonica” so now I have a harmonica but here’s the kicker I bought it on Amazon! The moral of the story is harmonicas are cool.
Hello! I’m Lauren, a third-year Computer Science major from Huntington Beach, California (also known as Surf City!).
