Why did you choose ESTEEM? 

I chose to study ESTEEM at Notre Dame so that I could combine my passion for science and entrepreneurship in a formal setting. This course will allow me to create innovative and world-changing ideas through the lens of my physics background.

What is your Capstone Project and why are you excited about it? 

For my capstone project, I’m working with Inveniam to revolutionize the process by which carbon credits are measured, audited, tokenized, and traded in the marketplace
using the company’s patented blockchain technology. This will make carbon credit trading more efficient and help the world achieve its goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

Inveniam is a fast-growing SaaS company that provides data integrity and price discovery for low-frequency trading assets, using big data, AI, and distributed ledger

I am excited to take the lead in the creation of Inveniam Carbon Credit and make a positive step forward to a more sustainable world.

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM? 

It is my hope to pursue my own startup after ESTEEM. Throughout the course, I will try to build a startup that will hopefully progress into a business by the end of the year. I want to create something that will have a truly positive impact on the world.

What do you like to do in your free time? 

I’m a very outdoorsy person. I love nature, keeping active, and sports plays a large role in my life. I also enjoy playing guitar, reading and hanging out with my friends.
