My name is Adam, and I recently graduated from Stanford with a B.S. in computer science. I’m broadly interested in various fields of computer science including machine learning and computer security. I’m most passionate about the use of technologies to create an impact and improve society. I like to spend my free time reading and listening to podcasts, with some of my favorite topics being economics and US healthcare policy.
