Brief Biographical Sketch:

Sophomore Undergrad at Stanford pursuing a B.S. in Chemical Engineering and a Notation in Science Communication.

Chemistry and Bollywood dance are my biggest passions - I've been doing chemistry research since the June 2015 and I've been performing Bollywood dance since December 2004.

Here at Stanford, I’m involved with chemistry research, Stanford University Physics Society (SUPS), and started my own Bollywood Dance Event Choreography portfolio.
Additionally, I recreationally play Badminton!

C6870: Computational Chemistry in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
When you think of chemistry, you probably think of brightly colored chemicals, cool reactions, and potentially some explosions. But what about doing chemistry...without actually stepping foot in the lab? How can we simulate chemical reactions and chemical systems on computers to learn about a system before conducting experiments? What can simulations allow us to do that experiments can't? This class will explore the intersection between chemistry, physics, and computer science to explain fundamental research questions in chemistry.
