I am a student in Northeastern's class of 2024, pursuing a combined major in Computer Science and Finance. I have been studying computer science since my freshman year in high school, and am comfortable coding in Java, Python, HTML, CSS, Javascript, and Typescript. I've also been learning about business concepts since sophmore year in highschool and are very familiar with many market concepts. When I'm not in classes or working on co-op, I'm often doing research on my latest start-up venture with the help of IDEA, Northeastern's venture accelerator. I've also done software engineering as well as financial and IT analyst internships/co-ops with multiple start-ups, John Hancock and Ahold Dehaize.

A variety of extracurriculars I'm involved in on campus include: BU Jalwa (BU's inter-collegiate bollywood fusion dance team), Disrupt (Northeastern's FinTech Innotiative), and IDEA (Northeastern's Venture Accelerator). In the rare moments I'm free, I also enjoy working out, playing ice hockey, playing guitar, and exploring Boston!
