### Personal

I grew up in Chicago and graduated from Whitney M. Young Magnet High School in 2009. In 2013 I graduated from the California Institute of Technology with a B.S. in mathematics. I served for three years as the president of the Caltech Math Club, during which time I started a seminar for undergraduates.Last updated on Feb 11, 2018.
