He has previously conducted research in computational chemistry at the Robb Research Group at the California Institute of Technology and the Alpha Lee Group at the University of Cambridge. He is published in peer-reviewed journals in the fields of machine learning and mechanochemistry. He additionally won the Gold Medal at the 2015 International Chemistry Olympiad.
"The lessons are very interactive which keeps you engaged with the course. The instructors are great at what they do and they guide you throughout the whole course. The take-home exercises were the most effective as they helped me to see how I can apply the knowledge I learned in the lessons and try to think like a programmer. Most importantly, the experience overall is so enjoyable. I was having so much fun that I didn't want the program to end."

?"This year I took the World Coders Academy course, and I really enjoyed it! There was a good balance of instruction and practice, and the practice exercises were really well made. I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot about Python."
