I am currently co-founder at PrepScholar, an educational technology company. We create online SAT prep programs and online ACT prep programs that put the best of a 1-on-1 teaching experience into an automated platform. Our educational programs understand each student’s strengths and weaknesses and automatically customize their learning programs to be most effective. Our goal is to put high-quality, customized teaching within reach of many more students.

I graduated from Harvard College with an AB/AM in Chemistry in 2009. I joined the MDPhD program at Harvard Medical School and MIT (with classmates Ashwin Nathan and Dafang Zhang), and withdrew in 2013.
