Formally, I study engineering (undergrad) at the University of Toronto. My time is split between falling down internet rabbit holes, exploring new ideas/places, studying topics of interest, and going on spontaneous adventures.
I strongly believe the intersection of otherwise divergent fields brings the most intriguing insights with a unique potential to become paradigm-shifting ideas. This is why I am interested in crossovers of other disciplines in biology.
Beyond science, I also care deeply about healthcare and education accessibility, as well as how we can improve incentive structures for better health outcomes.
As someone with lots of divergent interests, I like to think my past experiences are equally diverse. Still learning though! 🌱
show current/past experiences
Loyal (CompBio Associate): aging biology with dogs as a translational model; computational biology team (everything from data visualization projects to writing code snippets for streamlining workflows).
Wrana Lab (Research Student): microfluidic chips for studying organoid systems; designing a micromixer device to improve cell seeding (involves running computatonal fluid dynamics simulations, which is pretty cool!) and touching cells.
University of Toronto (Engineering Student): on break for the summer.
++ Preparing for an addition to the family, a puppy :)
Bank of Canada’s Quantum Lab (Research Assistant): coauthored staff analytical paper on quantum machine learning applications in finance. Completed literature review and benchmarked quantum algorithms/software. Presented several times to the Advisor to the Governor on Digitalization.
Harvard Energy Computational Science (Research Mentee, Quantum Chemistry): investigated quantum natural gradients for variational quantum eigensolvers, applied to small-molecule calculations. Code on GitHub and tutorial in Xanadu’s research blog.
Gamechanger.co (Associate, Growth & Marketing): all things growth, community-scaling, and content marketing; venture capital and innovation advisory firm. Helped with design/marketing on the Disco team as well, an edtech startup founded with inspiration from Gamechanger Sessions.
Quantum Open Source Foundation (Core Team, Community): helping scale the amazing quantum open-source software community and the quantum mentorship program.
Creative Destruction Lab (Apprentice): shadowed some of Toronto's top VCs and deep tech founders in CDL sessions (engineering and AI streams).
Goddard Gamage LLP (Legal Research Intern): assisted with basic legal research relating to estate litigation, and prepared wills and documentation for estate litigation (I did once upon a time, want to be a lawyer).
 I think it’s important to note this list isn’t exhaustive. It doesn’t fully capture the non-linearity of my journey or past failures. I wish someone had told me this earlier, so I’m leaving it as a footnote - everyone starts somewhere and can take (many) detours, it’s just not always fully documented on their profiles.
