ESP Biography



ELEANOR LIN, Stanford graduate student who hates paper cuts.




Major: iCME

College/Employer: Stanford

Year of Graduation: G

Picture of Eleanor Lin

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Eleanor was very bored one summer and started folding hyperbolic paraboloids out of uncut squares of free MIT printer paper. She made so many of them that she started gluing them together and made a icosahedron which got turned into a lamp. She is sad that she couldn't take the lamp with her to Stanford, so she decided to talk in the third person.
