Eric Zhong

CECS + EE Presidential Scholar at USC

Los Angeles, California



Hi I'm Eric! I'm a 3rd-year Presidential Scholar at USC concurrently studying towards a master’s in electrical engineering and a bachelor’s in computer engineering & computer science. I love to learn and build, two things you'll find common in most of what I've done. I'm passionate about all things computers—particularly computer architecture, low-level software/systems, and high-performance computing. In my free time, you can find me reading/writing, playing poker, or going down some random internet rabbit hole. Please feel free to reach out if you'd like to get in touch. Thanks for stopping by!
