Originally from sunny San Diego, Caelin moved to chilly Reykjavik, Iceland for his formative years before returning to California for college at Stanford. There, he dove into Chemical Engineering and leadership, running Tau Beta Pi (the engineering honor society) and graduating Phi Beta Kappa with distinction. Enamored by coding, he also earned a master’s degree in Computer Science and conducted research in Artificial Intelligence. He worked at Tesla in solar power and energy storage before moving on to Boston Consulting Group. After projects in sectors ranging from heavy industry to consumer goods, he decided to pursue his MBA at Harvard Business School.
Caelin has a passion for teaching and has multiple years of experience supporting students of all ages, from the elementary to the graduate level. He served as a Computer Science Teaching Assistant at Stanford for grad and undergrad systems courses, teaching sections of 20+ people and helping students with diverse learning styles one-on-one. In addition, he mentored underclass students through Tau Beta Pi, as well as volunteered as a Red Cross mentor. His specialties include mathematics (from trigonometry to partial differential equations and beyond), computer science (introductory courses, systems, algorithms, AI, etc), chemistry (AP Chem, organic chemistry, etc), and GRE preparation.
Outside of professional pursuits and studies, Caelin loves traveling to new places with his significant other, biking and fitness, cooking healthier meals, and the occasional crossword.
