About Rachel


Hi! I'm a sophomore at Stanford studying computer science, and I'm passionate about startups and creating technologies that have positive impact in fields like health, fitness, and education. I invented a medical device that monitors physical therapy for the knee, and I have filed for patents in the education technology space. I was also a founding software engineer at Queer Chart, a social platform to connect queer women at Stanford, and a co-founder of Sesame, a video calling platform that allowed friends to hang spontaneously. Right now, I'm working as a software engineer in the Stanford Medical School. In the past, I have worked as a software engineering intern at Yext and Vanguard and as a computer science research intern at George Mason University. I also attended Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. In my free time, I enjoy going for runs and playing chess.
