SUP! I'm a CS and Econ double major in my final semester at Berkeley. I love computer graphics - both coding them and watching/playing them (games, 3D animation, and films!). I really want to have my name on the credits of some game or film before I'm 30 (Top choices are Pokemon, Kingdom Hearts, and Assassin's Creed). I also love playing soccer (on IM team) and Tae Kwon Do (part of Berkeley's club). And to jump the bandwagon: I can't wait to meet you guys! :D

Hey, I'm a fourth year EECS major. I enjoy improving my cooking, watching anime, traveling, and playing starcraft. During my time at Berkeley my class focus has been (in no particular order) on theory, CV, ML, and graphics; I will be a software engineer at Airbnb in September. Shown here is myself and ふうちゃん, at a bunny cafe in Asakusa.

My name is Amit Akula and I am a senior majoring in Computer Science. I've taught this course as a TA twice before and am excited to be teaching it again. I strive to make teaching as interactive as possible so definitely expect some fun (if not slightly unorthodox) activities in my section. In my spare time I do research at UCSF and am a hall staff member for the Foothill residence hall. Feel free to ask me about that (or anything else CS related) during section or at office hours!

Hi friends! I'm a fourth-year EECS major from the Bay Area and super into algorithms/artificial intelligence/machine learning. I'm also an artist, Warriors fan, and ice cream lover. I will probably tell really bad (aka good) puns in class and can't wait to meet you all! #EECSciting
austinhle (at) berkeley.edu
I'm a third-year EECS major interested in human-computer interaction, graphics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and more specifically, how they can be applied to virtual reality. When I'm not caught up in the real world, I like to inhabit alternate online worlds (video games), watch anime, consume milk tea, and contemplate both the real and virtual worlds. I love meeting and getting to know new people, so don't hesitate to start a conversation with me about anything!

Hello, I'm a third-year CS major from Mexico. This is my first semester teaching 61B, I previously taught CS10 for two semesters. I'm really into podcasts my favorite one is The Joe Rogan Experience. I also like stand up comedy my two favorite comedians are Tom Segura and Bill Burr. Best TA review I've gotten: “Why does Carlos always have that mad dog face?” I tend to be friendly don't let that review misguide you.

I now suffer from minor memory issues because of a concussion. I can't do flares but I can windmill. I consume large quantities of coconut water and Triscuits. I want this semester to be the best 61B semester ever! :)

Greetings, Pepes~ I'm a 2nd year EECS major from Sugar Land, TX! I went to the same high school as KevJumba, Shaq O'Neal's daughter. In my free time, I like to browse dank memes and play eSport games: I'm currently deranking from LE in CS:GO due to school distractions, and I play League of Legends with housemates when we need to decide who will do the dishes or cut open the pineapples I purchased with my leftover meal points. If you find extra dank memes, holla me at ayylmao@berkeley.edu! If you are feelin' stressed, jus' know: You smart. You loyal. I appreciate you. Bless up. Another one.

Hi, I'm Alex, a second year CS major. I really enjoyed 61b because for most people it's where the fun part starts after 61a and before the infamous 70 and 61c duo blow your mind. Outside academics, I enjoy running and cooking. Hope we will have a wonderful 61b trip together!
