Gabbi Merz

I'm a junior at Harvard pursuing an A.B./S.M. in Computer Science.

In my free time I teach future tech assosciates of the Harvard Crimson the basics of web development using Python + Django. I also work with Professor Stuart Shieber and Sam Green as the Head Teaching Fellow for CS51: Abstraction and Design.

I like bad jokes, Thai food minus the peanuts, and any excuse to sleep in late. Why not get in touch?
