About Me

I’m a senior at Watchung Hills Regional High School in Warren, New Jersey.

I like solving problems in biology and education with technology.

I’m most interested in the intersection of biology and computer science. Working out of a home laboratory, I’ve developed several computational biology, digital health, and precision medicine products/projects.

Computational medicine isn’t just about blindly replacing doctors with robots; it’s about making human doctors better and increasing access to healthcare worldwide. There’s a lot of cool technology out there, but I think the biggest challenge of the next 100 years is going to be figuring out how to make this tech cheap and accessible to billions of people, not just those in developed countries.

I’m also fascinated by the potential for technology to impact education and learning. Two years ago, I founded Students Coding Schools, an edtech think tank, to apply technology to problems in the classroom. With a team of ten high school students (artists, athletes, researchers, and musicians) we are building interdisciplinary tools that students and teachers can use to make the learning experience more personalized and efficient.

Outside of tech, I like to read and write, especially American History and politics stuff. Here are some links to articles/essays I’ve written.
