Hi, my name is Richard Huang! I am currently a Junior at Carnegie Mellon University pursuing a B.S. in Information Systems and minors in both Computer Science and Business Administration. My passions lie in both technology and business as well as how they intersect and interact with each other. I have numerous experiences in many different sectors and industries including finance, healthcare, technology, and even non-profits. Most recently, I have been leading a new initiative at UPMC regarding Data Governance, which is actually one of the first in the hospital industry. I've also worked on many different projects that I am very interested in, including my most recent one where I analyzed Yelp's data for restaurants in Pittsburgh and used machine learning to suggest certain features for restaurants to have in order to achieve a higher ranking on Yelp. I'm also involved and hold leadership positions in many different organizations around campus including ENACTUS, where I teach technical and professional development courses to veterans, my fraternity Delta Tau Delta, and various other organizations.
Some of my other hobbies and passions also include: piano, clarinet, magic tricks, diabolo (Chinese yo-yo), and teaching!!

ENACTUS (Entrepreneurial Action by Us) is a global non-profit and community of student, academic and business leaders committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to transform lives. More specifically I was part of the Citizen's Empowerment team where the focus was utilizing our group's skills in order to help Veterans around our area with professional development and career focussed skills.
I was the Project Leader of Citizen's Empowerment and led/oversaw all projects that we were working on. I led weekly team meetings and talk with our team to gauge each member's skill set. I then organized and taught professional technical courses at Veterans Leadership Program of Western Pennsylvania. I also developed the curriculum for the courses that we taught at the organization including Microsoft Office, Email, Google Docs, résumé, cover letters, and even technical skills (ex. building a website).
ArduSat and High-Altitude Balloon are two projects that an organization that I am part of has worked on. I mainly worked on ArduSat which was part of Kickstarter where we were actually able to work on and program sensors on a Arduino based satellite. I personally managed the programming aspect of this Arduino based satellite project that have been launched back in November 2013. I also programmed data collection for various sensors including the Geiger counter on the high-altitude balloon project which has been launched multiple times.
ACSL was a computer science organization that I was part of that competed in algorithmic and knowledge based cometitions. ACSL is an international competition where were actually able to win 9th place in the world! I led and trained the school team for the international ACSL computer algorithms competition. I also organized weekly club meetings and fundraisers to help support our international finals trip.
Milk Line is a startup based club on our campus that my friend and I co-founded. It is a business/start-up club that conveniently delivers a healthy breakfast to students around campus and the goal of the club is to bring more entrepreneurship exposure to students. I also ran club meetings, developed future business strategy of the Milk Line, and helped build the website to facilitate orders from students.
Do-Something Club is a non-profit organization with the goal of motivating young people to take action around social changes through national campaigns and grants for projects that make an impact. I actually was able to organize and run the first ever county wide science fair at our school with the help of my team. The goal of the science fair was to encourage smart and talented middle school students to continue pursuing their passions in the sciences. I also ran charitable events such as Teens For Jeans and selling Breast Cancer Ribbons to raise awareness and donate the proceeds.
I am a brother of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity at CMU and we have a large presence on campus where our brothers are invovled in a variety of different organizations and charitable events. As treasurer I was able to help manage all the funds for the Fraternity and created the budget for all internal departments. I was also in charge of coordinating with the fraternity Chef that we just hired by managing the meal plan income and creating a budget.
