Clara Hung : Astronaut Scholarship

Clara Hung (’25, Computer Science & Physics) is interested in combining optics and machine learning algorithms to engineer next-generation computational cameras. As an undergraduate researcher at UC Berkeley’s Computational Imaging Lab, she is developing a dataset acquisition system for lensless imagers to enable budding research at the intersection of imaging, machine learning, and information theory. Fascinated by how images tell human stories and push scientific discoveries, she wants to continue developing computational imaging systems that allow us to see more with less. She aims to pursue a PhD and, in the future, become a professor to mentor students and lead her own lab. Beyond research, she is heavily involved in K-12 Outreach with the UC Berkeley Society of Women Engineers and will serve as President for the coming year.
