Jared Angel Canty
I am majoring in Brain and Cognitive Science and Information Science. I'm also minoring in Computer Science, Game Studies/Design, Spanish, and History. I enjoy studying and learning about new things across every subject (from mathematics to Philosophy!), video gaming, writing, exercising, and spending time with family; but above all else, I love to meditate, pray, and reflect on life! From a young age, watching movies like the Matrix inspired me to delve deeper into the technical and philosophical aspects of human-machine interaction. The information sciences offer the answers to many of the burning questions that arose from exploring those aspects. The Data Science and HCI Pathways of the major are the ones on which I have chosen to focus, since they perfectly complement my studies in Cognitive Science, which also focuses on similar disciplines. I intend on leveraging these skills to go where I am called and better the lives of those around me.
