New Haven, Connecticut Chapter President
Hi! I’m David Zhou, a rising senior at Hopkins School in New Haven, Connecticut. My experience in science covers a diverse range of fields in both competitions and research. Having been involved in my school’s nationally ranked Science Olympiad team since sophomore year, I’ve competed and medaled in events such as Codebusters, Disease Detectives, Dynamic Planet, Fossils, and Herpetology. I also have plenty of experience in the lab, having worked at SUNY, Yale, RPI, and UMichigan researching cancer, arthritis, and exoplanets. My individual research projects have also won numerous awards and recognition from fairs and competitions all across the nation. In between school and science, I enjoy bowling with friends and watching Hulu.
I joined Aerovate to cultivate my passion for tutoring outside of my school’s peer tutor program. In an era where education is more crucial than ever and the future is shaped by young thinkers, I want to leave my mark by using this opportunity to positively impact students in need, especially during this unprecedented time of COVID-19.
