Hey there! I'm Olivia.
I graduated from Brown University in Spring 2020 with a double major in computer science and music, and I currently work as a Security Consultant at NetSPI.

Hi! šŸ‘‹ Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Olivia Langley, and I'm a recent graduate of the computer science program at Brown University in Providence, RI.

My first exposure to programming was playing around with an early version of Scratch back in elementary school. I was completely fascinated, and spent hours designing overly complicated mazes and painstakingly drawing my own custom sprites. Despite this early introduction to the ~wonders of code~, I didn't seriously start considering computer science as a career option until the summer before my freshman year of college, when I stumbled upon a documentary about recent developments in cybersecurity. I was hooked immediately, to the point that I decided — almost overnight — that I wanted to major in computer science.

In Summer 2019 I was an intern on the Information Security team at Qorvo, and in Spring 2020 I was a Head TA for CSCI1660 (Computer Systems Security). Since January 2021 I've been working as a Security Consultant at NetSPI, a penetration testing company based in Minneapolis.

Outside of computer science, Iā€™m a big fan of live looping, classic rock, and cheering on my college a cappella group from afar. I also consider myself a semi-professional Stardew Valley player, and like to spend my free time attempting to break the game by min/max-ing as much as humanly possible.
