I grew up in Palo Alto, California, affectionately known as the heart of Silicon Valley. I am currently a senior at Harvard University pursuing a B.A. in Physics and S.M. in Computer Science.
I am passionate about using robotics and physics to learn more about our amazing universe and further our collective consciousness. I am also passionate about applying an engineering mindset and toolkit to a variety of fields—such as improving the environment to combat global warming, developing brain-computer interfaces to unlock our intellectual potential, building smart cities that save energy and improve quality of life, and creating economic policies that reduce inequality. I care deeply about educational empowerment, and I hope to give back to my community by mentoring young people pursuing STEM fields.
