Favorite Course 20 subject and why?
20.110-Thermodynamics of Biomolecular Systems because it was first real taste of Course 20 and on the flip side, 20.380-Biological Engineering Design because it was so fun implementing the knowledge we amassed over the years with my Course 20 friends and peers to solve problems.

What will you miss most about being an undergraduate at MIT?
Definitely the people because everyone is so passionate about something. Not only will I miss my ambitious high-achieving classmates and friends but also the incredibly supportive faculty and staff that make MIT such a special place of growth and development through self-exploration and overcoming challenges.

Where will you be next year?
I will be pursuing a PhD in Neuroscience at Hopkins! Will try to apply as much BE as possible to study the brain!

Who deserves a shout-out?
Without my family, UROP mentors, and friends, I definitely would not be where I am today. Thank you mom and dad for always supporting my decisions, Colin and Ming for teaching me real research, and to all my friends who stayed up real late with me to pset or party!
