Luke is a third year PhD student in Computational Science and Engineering, who joined the Ballroom Dance Club and Team his first semester, Fall of 2019. His favorite dance to compete in is Cha Cha, but he has the most fun with Hustle. He is interested in many forms of technology, and is always tinkering (and often breaking) his devices.
