Executive Committee

Brad Windsor

Greetings! I am a fourth year chemical engineer from Fremont, CA, with a minor in applied math. In addition to the ESC, I am very involved with the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. I spend much of my free time swing dancing. Things which I never turn down include wrestling, frisbee, the board game Pente, and vanilla flavored tea. If you ever see me around campus please introduce yourself. I love meeting new people.

Mark Iskarous

Hey Everyone! I am a fourth year EECS student focusing on Circuit Design, Sensors and Brain-Machine Interfaces. I grew up in nearby San Jose, CA and have come to love the crazy city of Berkeley. During my time at Cal I have loved being a Campus Ambassador (university tour guide!) and as a member of Theater for Charity and the Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Student Advisory Committee. During my free time I love to play basketball, watch the NBA and NFL and read science fiction. If you see me around say hi!

Jingting Wu

I'm a third year chemical engineering student minoring in EECS. I was born in China and currently, my home is St. Louis, MO but I have lived in San Diego as well. I love engaging in Berkeley’s engineering community and I hope to improve other people’s experiences here at Berkeley. Besides school, I enjoy eating, watching basketball and football, and playing any sport recreationally.

Yike Qin

I am a senior Civil Engineering student with two minors in Architecture and Sustainable Design. I love swimming and listening to music. Country, folk and pop are usually my type. I am always excited to see all ESC sponsored organizations to grow and show off Berkeley Engineering. Thus, should you need any help, please feel free to contact me.

An aspiring bioengineer and UX Designer, Zach loves to examine life's problems through a scientific lens and devise solutions to maximize his total utils. When he finds time in between battling a technical-heavy course load, balancing extra-curricular activities, and overcoming the banalities of off-campus housing, Zach is likely to be actively learning about body mechanics through sports and outdoor activities (biking, kayaking, rock-climbing; etc.) or discussing life's mysteries with his friends.

Anita Cheung

I am a third year bioengineering major, adventure junkie, and neophile from sunny San Diego. I live to learn new languages, fun trivia, and partake in all interesting facets of life. When I have time, I like to attempt cooking traditional cuisine, traveling, meeting people, and reading. Otherwise, I spend my time managing BioEHS, working as a Peer Adviser, and in research. Ask me about my experiences because I would definitely love to learn about yours!

Edgar Salgado

I’m a second year intended Economics & IEOR double major. I am an international student from Monterrey, Mexico. Finance, soccer, innovation and cooking are among my major interests. I also really enjoy doing community service and travelling. Feel free to contact me for anything you might need!

Jessica Hsueh

Hi, I’m Jessica Hsueh, a third year bioengineering major interested in health-related fields and interesting talks. I am also involved in BMES, BioEHS, and SWE, and I like to learn about and participate in events from other organizations as well. Outside of academics, I enjoy good food, books, movies, puzzles, Quidditch, and archery. One of Cal’s best qualities is the diversity of opportunities and people, even just within the College of Engineering, and I hope to inform you about as many events as possible to get the most out of Berkeley.

Hillary Chen

Hi! I’m a third year bioengineering major from Michigan. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, biking, tree climbing, and basically anything else outdoorsy. I love puppies, Poprocks, and Settlers of Catan, so if you have any of those please contact me. My new home is the Engineering Library so if you’re ever there feel free to find me and chat, I always enjoy procrastinating.

Engineers Week

Sarina Chen

Hi lovelies! I'm a second year majoring in IEOR and minoring in music. I'm from Huntington Beach, CA so I live two miles away from the ocean, but I don't like the water or sand because it's dirty and I'll drown. Instead, I love biking, photosynthesizing, cooking, telling jokes, and playing the oboe. I also like meeting people and making them happy. And someday, I hope I can make everyone smile.

Dwight Hu

Hello, I am a third year chemical engineering major. I am a big fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, basketball, playing strategic board games, and listening to American rap music. I also very much enjoy following spectator sports, particularly the Cal Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals, the NFL's most honorable team.

Kim Li

Hey everyone! I’m a 3rd year Bioengineering student from Vancouver, CANADA. When I’m not being a couch potato binge watching Netflix, I like to explore different restaurants around Berkeley so feel free to grab a bite with me! I also traveled to a lot of interesting places like Kenya and Tibet so I can tell you lots of funny/scary stories.

Aaron Schwartz

Hi guys. I am a second year chemical engineering major from San Gabriel, CA. Outside of school, I enjoy running, reading, (the next book on my to-read list is Dune), listening to music, and playing chess or other strategy games. I also enjoy cooking, but I won't claim that I am good at it.

Debleena Sengupta

Hey there! I'm a second year EECS major from sunny San Deigo. I love traveling, exploring new cuisines, listening to music and going on crazy adventures with my friends and family. Some of the amazing places I've traveled to are Jordan, Egypt, India, and Europe. I love meeting new people so feel free to come talk to me about all the awesome trips you have been on!

Kethaki Varadan

Hello! I'm a senior MSE major from Fremont, CA (40 min away!). I'm also part of SWE (Society of Women Engineers) and previously, BEAM (Berkeley Engineers & Mentors). Classical music, amateur photography, STEM education and old-ish films are some things I'm really interested in. I enjoy meeting people, so do stop me to chat about anything from classes, to my newly-discovered pursuit of urban hiking.

Financial Committee

Joe Jankowski

I’m a fourth year MSE major pursuing a minor in physics. Besides being a member of FiComm, I am also the treasurer of the Materials Science and Engineering Association (MSEA). My hope is that while I am in FiComm, I will be able to better connect engineering student groups with all of the resources that the ESC has to offer. This includes increasing the general awareness of all of the ESC’s funds and actively promoting cooperation between ESC/FiComm and engineering student groups. Having had more than two years of experience as an officer in engineering student groups, I think I can identify ways in which FiComm can meet these goals.

Nandita Sampath

I’m a second year in the EECS and Material Science joint major. I’m from Saratoga, California, a small city in the south Bay Area. On campus, I am co-president of the Society of Engineering Sciences and works in a mechanical engineering lab. In the future, I would like to be in the research and development sector working with optical or magnetic materials. I have a somewhat ironic fascination with Burning Man and hopes to visit one year. I enjoy exploring Thai restaurants in Berkeley, trying to salvage the remnants of my middle school basketball career, and playing the piano.

Brian Lau

My name is Brian Lau and I'm a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering major from Sacramento, CA. I enjoying getting my hands dirty building and taking things apart. On campus I'm involved in a social Fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, an engineering honor society, Tau Beta Pi, and I'm the Spring 2014 - Fall 2015 External President of AIAA, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. I'm also the team lead for the NASA RASC-AL Robo-Ops Mars Rover competition team at UC Berkeley. Outside of school, I like to explore nature and travel the world. I thoroughly enjoy completing long 12-14 hour day hikes and camping overnight in the Sierras. I also enjoy cars, specifically Japanese Imports or JDM cars. If you see me around campus, feel free to say hi and lets talk!

Isaac Williams

I’m a third year undergraduate studying Civil Engineering, with an emphasis in Structural Engineering. I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand, but now I call Northern California home. I'm a member of the UC Berkeley Steel Bridge team, which allows me to pursue my structural engineering interests outside of the classroom. I work in the Center for Access to Engineering Excellence on campus, and I am also a Cal Mic Man, so you may have seen me at a Cal game leading cheers and getting far too excited. In my spare time I like to play intramural sports, specifically softball, bake, and run. Go Bears!
