My name is Mariana Tandon and I am a socio-technical student at Duke University from Pittsburgh, PA.

My distinct majors inspire me everyday to innovate. Computer Science is
all about updating for new efficiencies in unceasing iterations of change. My Cultural Anthropology classes remind me of the intense nuances to
non-technical, institutional systems that must be innovated as
well— albeit with much slower rates of ‘progress’. A system is never finished nor full— we
must iterate on existing frameworks and reform our understanding of the
world by incorporating new cases into the picture.

I believe that I am well equipped to play a part in social and technical innovation. While I am excited to graduate and focus on making a larger impact, I will always be a student and will never stop learning. Knowledge is power!
