- Lifelong Kindergarten
My research explores better tools to think with and post-industrial models for school.
Before MIT, I led development (from ideation to scale-up) of degree programs at a pan-African University with campuses in Mauritius, Rwanda, and Kenya and over $80M USD in funding. We remixed ideas from places like Olin, Minerva, 42, Ashesi, and High Tech High to create a university where students learn through projects, research, and industry placements instead of lectures and decontextualized assignments.
Outside of work, I mentor youth at a community makerspace and coach MIT startups. Rumor has it I make the best cup of Chai this side of the Atlantic..
