YODAMA stands for Yoseph Daniel Maguire. That's it, nothing fancy.
I am a senior at Rice University studying Electrical and Computer Engineering, specializing in Data Science.
I am ambitious to change the world for the better.
The intersection of increasingly complex global issues and the explosion in computing capabilities over the past 20 years warrants an urgency toward the development of digital solutions aimed at addressing the right problems. Through my work I hope to lend unique thought and a meaningful voice in the field of technology toward our shared goals as a global community.
My background is international. I am Egyptian-American, and have lived, in order, in: Bangkok, Thailand; Balikpapan, Indonesia; Jakarta, Indoensia; Cairo, Egypt; Houston, Texas. In travelling I have learned to really value the variety of pespectives different cultures, religions, and peoples bring to the table.
In my free time I ride my bike, write a blog, and serve as a small group leader. I also really like coffee, the history of social and political thought, and technology focused on time well spent.
