I’m Kevin Wu, a graduate student at the University of California, San Diego studying biology with Steve Briggs. My research interests span the boundary between computer science and biology. I spend my spare time taking pictures or programming side projects Sometimes I like to pretend that I know about food. Once upon a time, I really enjoyed lining up colors on the Rubik’s cubing, and my fastest single solve in competition was 15.60s
