Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a junior attending Stanford who's constantly looking for ways to better help others reach their fullest potential to realize their dreams.

C6576: Black Holes, Dimensionality, and Imaginary Time in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Ever wondered how black holes work? Why do they do the things they do, and what do they actually do? What's a singularity, and why are they important? Or perhaps you've wondered about what our world is made out of. How many dimensions are there, and how do they work? What is the heart of our space made out of? And imaginary time?! What is that? Well, if any or all of these topics interest you, then you're in for a treat. This class will give you a solid introduction and understanding of how our world works and the tools we can use to study theoretical physics and the cosmos. This class will be challenging, but if you are at least the tiny bit interested please attend! I can most definitely work with you and ensure you leave Stanford with a comprehensive understanding of the material. I look forward to meeting you! NOTE: this class will not take up the entire 105min block. You'll be dismissed early, but feel free to stay to ask questions.


H6577: Existentialism, Nihilism, and Purpose in Splash Fall 2018 (Dec. 01 - 02, 2018)
Why are we here? More importantly, what is the point of us even being here? Is it worth it? Is anything worth it? What is worth? Where are we going, and why are we going to begin with? The philosophical and realistic implications of scientific discoveries have stricken many with great dread, depression, and insecurity regarding the purpose of life and the world around us. In this discussion seminar, we will seek to explore these issues and concerns to try and find answers within ourselves. A great goal of this class is to share your perspective with others and learn from others' perspectives so that you may enrich your view of your place in the world. Be warned that this class openly and freely challenges in discussion topics like religion, purpose, and morality. This class will also deal with dark subject matter. However, by treating these subjects with gravitas we will learn and explore a lot about our existence. NOTE: this class will not take up the entire 105min block. You'll be dismissed early, but feel free to stay to ask questions.
