I am Alice Bibaud, a senior Computer Science (CS) student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), concentrating in Theory, Algorithms, and Mathematics. I am interested in the visualization and commercialization data, open source technologies, signal processing, and making computing more accessible and practical for all to use.

My academic and professional passions run broad and deep, and often add meaning to one another; my goal with this website is to show you some of them.
