Hi there!

My name is Jorelle and I’m an incoming freshman intending to study Computer Engineering at the National University of Singapore. I consider myself fortunate to have been offered both the Engineering Scholars Programme and the University Scholars Programme concurrently, which will allow me to acquire technical depth in computer science and electrical engineering, while pursuing my varied interests in other disciplines.

Intellectually, I find myself deeply curious about the nature of intelligence, both natural and artificial. I intend to use my time at NUS to deepen my knowledge in this area, by taking courses such as CS3243 Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and UWC2101R Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Mind. It is also a long-term career goal of mine to work at Google DeepMind, to pursue research in Artificial General Intelligence.

Outside of the classroom, I am a National Athlete in the sport of Fencing, which has been a lifelong passion of mine. I intend to continue improving myself both as a fencer during my studies, and bring glory to Singapore on the international stage.

Please do contact me if you wish to talk more!
