Chirasree Mandal


Developer, student teacher, and designer studying Computer Science at Berkeley.


I’m a third year majoring in Computer Science at UC Berkeley. I’m also pursuing the Berkeley Certificate in Design Innovation and plan to graduate in Spring 2022.

I’m interested in backend engineering, data science, natural language processing, and user interface design. This past summer I was a software engineering intern at Apple. Learn more about my technical experience.

In addition to coding, I love telling stories with illustration and data science. Check out my projects.

I’m also TA for CS61B, Berkeley’s Data Structures course. Here my teaching materials!

I’m originally from Evanston, Illinois but have lived in 10 cities throughout my childhood. When I’m not working, I enjoy watching movies, drinking cold brew coffee, and reading sci-fi.
