Catherine Zeng

I am a student at MIT studying Electrical Engineering & Computer Science, and Physics, with a concentration in Music. I am interested in understanding how things work and everything out of the ordinary.

Stuff I care about:

  • Entrepreneurship. My friends and I built a boba machine that became very popular in our dorm. Lambda Tea was later funded by Y Combinator, and I spent eight months in San Francisco.
  • Building stuff. I have participated in 7+ hackathons, winning prizes such as Top 10 at HackMIT (2x) and the Best Internet of Things Prize. For more information, check out my Github.
  • Music (experienced in classical piano). In high school, I was a nationally acclaimed pianist and went to performing arts schools for seven years. Check out my recordings here.
  • Writing. I deeply admire good writing, and I like to write in my free time. I have been keeping journals of my life for six years. Check out my writing here.
