I was a student of Milestone between 2014 and 2016. During secondary school I participated in a number of competitions, including the International Chemistry Olympiad where I earned a gold medal. Upon graduation from secondary school I continued my studies at the University of Cambridge, where I studied Natural Sciences, and specialised in Chemistry. During my studies in Cambridge I also spent 3 months at Caltech as a visiting research student. After receiving my BA degree in 2019 I studied Scientific Computing at the Department of Physics and then switched to the Department of Engineering, where I am currently working on my PhD in atomistic modelling of molecules and materials using machine learning. In my free time I am a big football fun and enjoy going to concerts and festivals.
