Eric Eckert


What's good Huskies!? My name is Eric Eckert. I like badminton as much as I like watermelon, which is a lot! Off the court I am a 5th year in Human Centered Design and Engineering, looking at a career in software engineering. My desire for greater heights has pushed me to continue with badminton through thick and thin, but what's most important to me is paying forward an experience to a community that painted my college life with the vivid colors of youth, such that I could escape the harsh realities of becoming an adult. Feel free to reach out to me for everything and anything!

Michael Owyang

 Vice President

Hey everybody! My name is Michael and I'll be the Vice President of the Husky Badminton Club this year. I've been an avid player for about 6 years and I love connecting with new or experienced players. Outside of badminton, I'm interested in user experience design, environmental sustainability, and business marketing. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions regarding the club or badminton in general.

Isabelle Hua


Hi everyone! I’m a second year undergraduate student currently studying biochemistry and neurobiology. I started playing badminton since elementary school and have never lost my love for it. I hope to make club an inclusive, welcoming, and fun experience for everyone. Outside the court and classes, I also love traveling, photography, and writing all about it. If you see me around, don’t be a stranger and don’t hesitate to say hi!

Travis Clement


Hi! I’m currently a second year engineering student, hoping to get into Computer Engineering. I joined the Husky Badminton Club last year, and I’m excited for more. Aside from badminton, you can probably find me watching soccer. No matter how bad they will be, the Rapids will always hold a special place in my heart. Don’t be afraid to say hi!

Samantha Sun

 Publicity Manager, Webmaster

Hello! I am an undergraduate senior in bioengineering, and I joined Husky Badminton Club in Spring 2017. Between class and research, you’ll either find me studying at a coffee shop or on the badminton courts. In my free time, I enjoy being in the outdoors, pretending to be a photographer, and eating my way around the city. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and improving the club experience for everyone, so don’t be afraid to say hello!

Yiran Ni

 Outreach Coordinator

Hi, I’m a third year undergraduate student studying informatics, focusing on HCI (human-computer interaction) track. I’ve been a badminton player for 11 years. I was trying to be a professional player but then I changed my mind being a college student. Off the court, I like to explore different design tools such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. I also like to collect fashion products. Feel free to reach out to me and ask me any questions!
