I am a member of the Kappa Kappa Kappa Fraternity (Tri-Kap) at Dartmouth.
I was on the club fencing team at Dartmouth. We won overall first at club nationals in 2018 at Knoxville!
I am from Herndon, Virginia. When visiting home, I enjoy playing tennis and poker with my childhood friends. I went to Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST) in Alexandria, Virginia.
My favorite books are Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, and When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi. My favorite movies are The Imitation Game and the Fast and Furious franchise. I love the Sherlock TV Series and Grey's Anatomy.
Blog posts about my life, partially inspired by John Watson's blog from the Sherlock Holmes stories.
This fall, I did an exchange term at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Lyngby, Denmark, just outside of Copenhagen. I lived outside the US for the first time in my life and visited cities in Europe that I had before only dreamed of seeing. It was the most incredible term I’ve had in college so far.
This spring quarter, I interned at Oracle (previously Dyn) in Hanover. I had ample time to work on machine learning projects both at Oracle and for my research since I was not enrolled in classes, and I’m grateful to have been close enough to campus that I could spend time with friends and work as a teaching assistant for a machine learning class.
A lot of students find winter term challenging because of the cold weather. At times, I definitely felt like ignoring all my work and just watching youtube videos in bed. But overall, it was a good term filled with personal and intellectual growth.
This post will be the first of a series of blog posts documenting my time in college by term, starting from sophomore fall. It’s basically a compilation of my experiences, observations, and random thoughts.
