James Weichert he/him

Hi y’all! I’m a senior from Virginia studying computer science and data science. When I’m not in the classroom, you can usually find me in the Student Union working for the ASUC or at one of a couple of coffee shops around campus. I’m super excited to be teaching Data 6, and hope you enjoy learning data science as much as I do.

Will Furtado he/him

Hey! I’m a rising senior from Cape Cod, MA studying Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. Outside of teaching, you’ll likely find me curating Spotify playlists, playing Wii Tennis, or shooting film on my Canon AE-1. I’m incredibly excited to be teaching Data 6 this summer. Reach out with any questions – any at all!
