I'm a sophomore at Harvard studying math. I grew up in 8 cities, London and Abu Dhabi chief amongst them.Currently Reading: Exact Thinking in Demented Times, Freud: Inventor of the Modern Mind, A Promised Land, The Ascent of Money.
I have been to school with sons of Guatemalan immigrants and Emirati oyster farmers, with the daughters of Indian cobblers and British royalty. Growing up, I moved from Kentucky to New York to Ohio, then to Delhi, Abu Dhabi, London, San Francisco, and soon, to Boston. I speak passable Hindi and French, and am trying to pick up Mandarin.
I spent the first two years of high school at Cranleigh, Abu Dhabi, and the second two at Westminster School, London. I took A-levels in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. I spent a gap year in the Bay Area working as a software engineer, and am now studying some combination of math, statistics, economics and computer science at college.
I'm currently building some autonomous video game agents, trading bots, an online text editor that recommends books/blogs based on your writing, and trying to understand what good research in statistics and algorithms looks like. I'm also taking summer courses on macroeconomics, introductory psych, programming paradigms, mathematical modelling, and brushing up on my French grammar. If any of this sounds interesting, drop me a note.
Though I came into college intent on a PhD in computer science followed by a career in technology, I am currently pretty enamored with economics and statistics, and am considering a career in the academy. I'd like to spend a few years in each of Shanghai, Paris, São Paulo and Sydney no matter how the next few decades play out.
