Our Student Consultants are skilled members of our CEETE Team. They are also students, researchers, performers, and, fantastically interesting people!
Jonah Leurquin: “I am a senior geological engineering student and have worked here at CEETE for a few years now. I enjoy this work because I like working through problems and learning how to best teach science courses. As a student, I am interested in how we can use geophysics to learn more about geohazard protection. If you were to run into me on a random summer day I am most likely biking around Lake Mendota jamming to my summer playlists and eating an artisan PBJ sandwich.”
Haengjung(“Haeng”) Ye joined CEETE in September of 2016, and has been a Lead Consultant since January of 2018.
She is an senior major in Computer Sciences. She is interested in how technology can bring values in society, so she has also worked as an undergraduate researcher in the Learning Sciences Lab at WCER. As one of the organizers at MadHacks – Wisconsin’s largest hackathon, she spends her time helping other students expand their passion in CS. In her spare time she enjoys playing the keyboard, running, and watching cool videos of Boston Dynamics.

Roz Stengle is a sophomore double majoring in Computer Science and Economics and has been working with CEETE since the spring of 2017. She loves technology and how people interact with it and make decisions. When she’s not reading up on game theory or distributed systems, she’s probably cooking, hiking or watching a SciFi movie and thinking about her future dogs.
Diego Fratta is a first-year student here at CEETE. He has been a part of the student consulting team since December 2017. Diego is studying Computer Engineering and Computer Science hoping to work with virtual reality someday or as a professor. Outside of school and work Diego enjoys watching and playing soccer, video games and watching TV.
Kudirat Alimi: “I’m a freshman from New York CIty studying Computer Science as well as an Undergraduate Research Scholar who works on implementing interventions for kids in the Social Kids Lab. My interests lie heavily in Educational Psychology and understanding how technology can improve classrooms and make the learning experience inclusive. I also enjoy drawing and looking up random game theories in my spare time.”
Allison Henke started as a consultant in March 2018 and is currently a sophomore double majoring in Neurobiology and Psychology. She has interests in biology, neurology, and wants to pursue a career in the medical field. In her spare time, she enjoys singing, dancing, playing instruments; like the ukulele, enjoying the outdoors, and hanging out with friends.
They may graduate, but their service will be remembered!
