About

me

I’m a senior (U4) at Harvard, concentrating in Statistics and Computer Science.

Outside of class, I find myself involved in strictly four-letter acronym clubs, trying to do research, and constantly interested in building things / doing side-projects.

this site

A friend of mine once had a Russian piano teacher…

Just kidding. But to anyone who’s seen a previous version of this site, this is about the third or fourth iteration of a corner of the web I’ve tried to carve out for myself. Hoping this time’s a charm.

Built with love, Hugo, and the Tale theme.

the purpose

Mix of an academic and online presence. Place to motivate thoughts on life, school, and side projects. Excuse to build silly things like this.
