Hi, I’m David Zhu
I am David Zhu, a current junior student at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I am currently dual degreeing in Information Science and Graphic Design, with minoring in computer science and probably math. I am interested in Interaction Design and codings like data science and machine learning. I also like video games, traveling, and Chinese literature and history.
Beyond my courses, I like games, art pieces, and kinds of stuff with the computer. I like playing with my friends on PC or phone, especially some MMORPG games like FF14. I sometimes would draw or create some drawings or pieces. For tech pathways, I enjoy exploring the possibilities and principles of devices. Beyond that, I and interested in traditional Chinese culture and literature. I also like to travel and wander in nature and take pictures. For classes, it is interesting I got everything related to coding either front end to machine codes although I am still in art
