Arpit graduated from the University of Connecticut with Honors in Biomedical Engineering, and is currently a PhD student at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is passionate about redefining the human understanding of cancer using the computational power of modern genetics. His interest in computation arose from participating in numerous math competitions including Mathcounts, NSF, ARML, and other state level competitions. Even though he has numerous trophies, his greatest pride comes from mentoring his former math team to achieving 1st place in state.
Over the course of his years teaching, Arpit has mastered how to tailor the study of mathematics for each student. He also enjoys teaching biology, computer science, and mathematics competition material.
When he is not in lab or class, Arpit rewinds via numerous hobbies, including photography, woodworking and horticulture.
