Lighthearted, curious, and always up for a challenge.

Hey there, I'm Ankur! Born and raised in Libertyville, Illinois, I'm working towards undergraduate degrees in Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California. I'm currently doing research in the Kuhn-Hicks lab, where I'm building new models to forecast the progression of metastatic breast and lung cancers to give oncologists better insights into how to treat their patients.

I also co-founded a summer startup internship program here in Los Angeles called Tech.LA Fellows, which partners students across the nation with some of the best startups in the city!

I’m also involved with Spark SC, USC’s student-driven hub for entrepreneurship and innovation, where I've run startup career fairs, two-month pitch contests, and hosted a podcast about student entrepreneurship. Aside from those things, I'm an avid hiker, reader, and baker-of-breads!
