Open Research Initiative is a new resource to inspire research topics for STEM-focused students at Princeton. Eno and I reached out to non-profits, startups, and industry leaders to curate cutting-edge real-world research topics (and hopefully share relevant data) that students might use to find interesting research problems for their Junior and Senior research. In this partnership, industry provides opportunities, research questions, and funding, and Princeton provides professors and students to collaborate.
As part of the Computer Science curriculum, Junior complete semester-long projects (“IW”) and Seniors undertake year-long independent theses.
ChatDoc is a chatbot for personal health records that empowers patients to have control over and easy access to their medical records. The MVP is a chatbot that asks you how you are feeling before you see a doctor and securely share that information with your physician.
My power-PM pal (almost an alliteration?) Jen Lee and I proposed a workshop at the 2020 Grace Hopper Celebration for Women in CS.
Only ~11% of VC funding went to companies with at least one female founder. Have an idea for a startup or side project? Let’s join them. In this workshop, we’ll help you generate and jumpstart your idea into a pitch. You’ll walk out with an elevator pitch and a 10 slide pitch deck or landing page to use to apply to accelerator programs, compete in startup competitions, and pitch to VC firms.
Onboarding is tough! We partner with companies and students to bridge the Academic-Professional Gap by leading a week-long boot camp that emulates a work environment to teach essential professional and technical skills.

Princeton’s curriculum does a great job of teaching core Computer Science and Engineering concepts. However, we noticed a gap between what’s taught in the classroom and what appears in tech interviews. So, we created a mentorship program between underclassmen who are interested in pursuing careers in tech (mentees) and young alumni/seniors who have recruited for and have held SWE, PM, and Data Science roles. The expectation is quite small: a 1-hour mock interview. Bevin, Stephen, and I created tech recruiting guides to scale knowledge sharing and provide a skeleton for and a way to standardize the 1-hour mock interviews.
Odes to Princeton is a collection of short stories submitted by current and former students with reflections, feelings, thoughts, and questions about Princeton
Create a ~ 10 member fellowship of passionate desi early in career folk who care deeply about learning about the intersectionality of being desi + changing the world through tech/entrepreneurship/business/venture capital.
Princeton Angel Investing Syndicate is a group of early in career Princeton grads (graduated in the last 5–10 years) who are banding together to source, diligence, and invest in early-stage startups.
I get so much energy from novelty, whether it’s meeting new people, exploring new places, interacting with new ideas, and building new concepts. During COVID-19, the first two have been tougher. So that’s why I co-founded Tech x Social Impact and joined Contrary’s Talent and home(work). For the last two, I’ve been pushing myself to learn more about industries where I have no prior experience (starting a job and newly experiencing healthcare and ML was one way!) and to actually build out new concepts.
I love coming up with new ideas, be it a startup or project or thing, but…
