Daniel is currently a second year student at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and is planning to pursue the joint MD/MBA program to someday explore the intersection of medicine, business, and technology. In 2016, Daniel received his BA in Neuroscience and Behavior with Latin honors from Columbia University. He was awarded the Robert Lincoln Carey Memorial Prize, which is awarded to the student who has created lasting and positive change by demonstrating leadership qualities in the co-curricular programs of Columbia College, with outstanding achievement in the academic program of the College. Daniel served as Publisher of the Columbia Daily Spectator, overseeing and mentoring 75 students on the newspaper’s Business & Innovations team, which is responsible for invaluable digital services, engaging community events, and over $300,000 in annual revenue generation. During college, Daniel also conducted research at the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

In medical school, Daniel has worked to design the healthcare systems science curriculum as one of the co-chairs of the SLIM Student Committee (Systems, Leadership, Integration, Management), which has involved planning lectures, seminars, and a hands-on clerkship experience. Daniel’s welcomes working with students of any level preparing for the SAT and GMAT.

If Daniel weren’t in medical school, his backup job would be to fix everyone’s computer problems, which is currently just a free service he provides to his friends. He also loves to follow the tech scene (Apple in particular), talk to people incessantly about why Breaking Bad is life-changing, and explore New York City excluding Times Square.
