Tishauna Wilson is a rising junior and computer science major at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University. She was born in Tampa, Florida, on April 28, 1998. She was first introduced to computers by her older-sister, LaRisha, and late-mother, Jonie.
Tishauna attended Tampa Bay Technical High School, where she learned to code in HTML and repair computers. As she progressed through high school, she remained a high-honor roll student and graduated in the top 4% of her class. Tishauna began her undergraduate studies in programming in C++ in 2016.
In 2017, Tishauna interned at the University of California, Irvine as an Internet of Things (IOT) Researcher. In early 2018, she revived Florida A&M University’s computer science research program. Tishauna is currently working on four Artificial Intelligence research projects with Dr. Clement Allen that consist of detecting fraud through conversations, detecting credit-card fraud, developing a voice-activated, self-driving drone, and a basketball referee system.
Tishauna has hopes of pursuing a PhD in Computer Science with a concentration in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning, and becoming a founder of an autonomous automobile manufacturing company. Along with earning accolades as a distinguished engineer/researcher, she also plans to become CEO of a Fortune 500 tech company.
