Holliday Sims

Holliday Sims is a new undergraduate research assistant currently studying Computer Science in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering on track to pursue a PhD in Computer Science. She was apart of the 2021 CSTEP Summer Research Program, where she studied the benefit of using computational methods to provide a more racially-equitable allocation of academic services to African-American foster youth. After the summer, she continued research and transitioned to research how people express their ideologies regarding racial inequality on social media and how they correlate with racially-charged incidents. Holliday is excited to aid in the development of the MWC curriculum and learn how implementing an integrated approach to curriculum design will impact the future of CS education. In her free time, she enjoys reading fantasy books, watching Youtube gameplays, and doing her nails!
