I recently graduated from MIT with a double major in Biological Engineering and EECS. I served as a teaching assistant for various courses throughout my undergraduate career in both the departments of Chemistry and Biological Engineering. In my free time, I’m an avid photographer, reader, and programmer. I’m also still involved with MIT’s very own Lion Dance Team!

I prioritize teaching students to care about a subject — understanding usually follows with an imbued sense of purpose. As an instructor for 20.309 my goal is to get students excited about making connections between what they learn in class with their own research interests. In parallel with teaching, I actively develop new tools for learning and thinking. Educational videos are one avenue I help students visualize complex ideas in new ways. I’m also in the process of developing new web interfaces to enable new student interaction with course content.
