# ESP Biography

## ANDREA LINCOLN, MIT Freshman studying math and computer science.

Major: 6 and 18

College/Employer: MIT

## Brief Biographical Sketch:

I was the president of team 1072s robotics team. I love power tools, soldering and calipers.
Math is also a love of mine. Proofs are fantastic.

W5026: Nerd Sniping in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Problems. We will have them. You will do our problems. Mathy/physicsy/CSy/logicy/whatevery problems!

C5288: Adder? But I hardly know her! in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
You will: Build a circuit to add and subtract. You start by learning how transistors can be used to make AND, OR and NOT logic gates. With AND, OR and NOT you consider how to build any logical statement including but not limited to XOR! You then design and build an adder. Finally you will determine how to subtract numbers using your adder!

C5354: Turing Machines in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
Learn about Turing Machines. You may have heard the term "Turing Machine" thrown around before. Come here to get an intuitive understanding! We will go over an intuitive description and build some intuition for basic results about Turing Machines. We will then discuss the rigorous definition. Learn about topics including: the Halting Problem, Decidability, NP hard problems, and more!

C3840: Circuits: logic gates, Karnaugh maps and the quest for truth tables in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
We begin our journey with transistors. From these transistors we build logic gates (NOT, OR, AND, XOR, etc). From these logic gates we build circuits. We use Karnaugh maps to go from a truth table to a circuit.
