Hi, I'm Austin.

I'm a student, teacher, software engineer, and gamer.

About Me

My name is Austin Le, and I am a 4th year undergraduate student at UC Berkeley pursuing a B.S. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS). As a student in the EECS Honors Degree program, I am also pursuing an additional breadth within Cognitive Science and Psychology. In Fall 2017, I will be pursuing my master's degree in Computer Science at Princeton University.

I love learning, teaching, experimenting with technology, contemplating the real and virtual worlds, and immersing myself in video games.

On campus, I am currently the President of Eta Kappa Nu, Mu chapter (the EECS Honor Society) and an Undergraduate Student Instructor for CS 184 (Computer Graphics and Imaging).

My academic and research interests are in computer graphics and vision, and especially in their applications in virtual reality, immersive computing, and interactive visual experiences. With my breadth in Cognitive Science and Psychology, I hope to apply concepts in human perception and cognition to research and development in these fields and be a part of the next revolution in graphics and VR/AR.

In my free time, I have been improving my web development skills, reading, and attempting to maintain a regular gym schedule. I am also passionate online gamer and greatly enjoy what modern video games have to offer: immersive worlds, challenging experiences, and team-oriented, strategic gameplay. I play a large variety of games, but some notable favorites of mine over the years have been RuneScape, League of Legends, both the original Guild Wars and its sequel Guild Wars 2, as well as Final Fantasy XIV.
