Ava Vellozzi
Computer Science Undergraduate Major



Hi i’m Ava! I am currently a second-year Computer Science student at the University of Florida. At UF, I am in the University Honors Program and University Research Scholars Program (URSP). I am involved in the Freshman Leadership Engineering Group, where I am the Public Relations director. I also did research in Digital Arts & Sciences last semester. This past summer, I interned at Microsoft as an Explore intern (product management and software engineering). Now, I am really excited to explore my interests in chemistry and health science and advance my programming skills in the Prentice Lab!
