His first co-op was as an Application Developer for Goldman Sachs in Boston, primarily focused on creating Java modules. This past spring, he worked as a Data Scientist at AstraZeneca in Waltham, using machine learning techniques to analyze medical histories and clinical trial data. He can help with Algorithms, Theory of Computation, and Object-Oriented Design, as well as any general programming or math questions. In his free time, Vishant enjoys music, video games, and table tennis.

Jeffrey Wallace

Jeff is a senior studying toward a combined degree in Computer Science and Physics. He has completed three co-ops in Software Engineering positions at Basis Technologies, Charles River Analytics, and Lockheed Martin. He has accepted a full-time position at BAE Systems for their Engineering Leadership Development Program. Outside of class, Jeff enjoys reading, tinkering with electronics, and playing ice hockey. He can help with Software Development, Object-Oriented Design, Algorithms and Data, Computer Systems, and Networks and Distributed Systems. Additionally, he can be a resource for Calculus 1, 2, & 3, Differential Equations, and Physics courses.
