Jay Shenoy

I am an undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying computer science. My academic interests range from computer vision to philosophy to public policy. Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to work under Ren Ng on research in computational imaging and Edward Kim on problems in autonomous vehicle simulation.

During my time at Cal, I've been a part of the multimedia team at our campus paper and a member of Extended Reality, where we make immersive short films.

Outside of school, I enjoy reading, filmmaking, and writing creative fiction.
