My name is Nathaniel Budijono.
I’m a life-long autodidact currently studying undergraduate computer science and math at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities. In the future, I hope to be an interdisciplinary computational researcher using computational structural biology or computational chemistry to create technologies for health or the climate.
In the past, I have worked as a software engineer intern at Rally Health and AI research intern at Smart Information Flow Technologies. I spent time researching genetic interaction networks, the linguistics of incels, and automated AI balancing of auto battler games. You can view my CV here and my résumé here.
Aside from learning, I am passionate about STEM communication and advocating for students with unconventional paths through the education system. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I created the websites for the Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers and App Developers Club at my university. At both, I led workshops, mentoring groups, and projects to learn machine learning, control systems, and web programming.
Right now, I am helping make biotech start-ups more accessible with the BioDojo and reading
