Hi, there! I'm Sam Lee (she/her/hers), a senior honors student at Rutgers University–New Brunswick pursuing a double major in Computer Science and Cognitive Science (with a concentration in decision-making) and a minor in Political Science. I'm located in the greater NYC area originally inhabited by the Munsee Lenape people.

I like to stay busy! I'm currently the co-president of Rutgers Women in Computer Science and the president and founder of the Rutgers Ethical Technology Club (Ethitech). I also volunteer as a data analyst for Lead Locally, a non-profit dedicated to electing community leaders who pledge to fight against fossil fuel projects.

I am additionally a part of the Impact Labs, Out in Tech, Rewriting the Code, and Girls Who Code communities.
