I was born and raised in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and I am currently a rising senior at the University of Rochester. I am majoring in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science. My research at UofR aims to develop a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model to improve laser lithotripsy procedures for treating kidney stones. I plan to pursue a PhD in Chemical/Energy Engineering and contribute towards developing reliable and sustainable off-grid energy solutions for deployment in rural regions. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing football and I am a big fan of F1 and MMA.
