Cargill Seiveright – 2020 Calico Challenge Participant

We feature Cargill Seiveright one of our 2020 Calico Challenge participants.

Hi there, I’m Cargill Seiveright. Currently, I’m a 2nd year Computer Science student at the University of the West Indies. I’m also pursuing to attain a minor in Japanese.

I was accepted for the Calico Challenge on March 2020. I’m really grateful and look forward to significantly benefit the Pattoo Project to help make it steps closer in becoming a wide scale IoT data collection system in Jamaica. I would also benefit from the hands-on development on the system using various skills and knowledge I have learned from school, self-learning, assigned mentors and collaboration with fellow participants.

I love spending my free time learning from watching videos, documentaries and reading short articles on various fields like science, nature, languages learning, philosophy, cultures, psychology and technology. For specialization, I have not decided as yet but it would fall somewhere from being a software developer to engaging in fields like Computational Biology. I still do have an affinity for biology since high school and I would love to be a pioneer in using the knowledge from Computer Science and apply it to Biology to bring amazing and endless possibilities to human life, especially in the realm of Immunology. Also, I enjoy having fun by exploring nature outside, laughing and going to new places with friends and generally making sure I get awesome memorable moments in life.
