INNIKA PANG, Office Assistant

Innika Pang is a student at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with a major in Psychology and a minor in Information & Computer Sciences. At the moment, she does not have a specific area of psychology that she would like to explore; rather, she is fascinated by many fields, including neuroscience. In the future, she would like to use her knowledge in computer science to aid neuroscientists in exploring parts of the brain that cannot be physically explored. Although IT is not her specialty, Innika was a part of the CyberPatriots team at her high school. By being a member of the CyberPatriots, she gained knowledge of cybersecurity and educated herself on the basics of the Linux OS. She also participated in eight-hour competitions, which tested the team’s accumulated knowledge of finding and fixing security threats. Additionally, they won second place in the Cyber-Hui competition. Despite knowing the basics of cybersecurity, she would like to expand her knowledge of both the software and hardware side of computers.
