Aaditya Singh is a rising MIT Freshman, with strong interests in mathematics, computer science, and chemistry. Currently a sophomore at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), he pursues his interests through advanced coursework, extracurricular STEM activities, and summer internships.
Aaditya has fostered his interest in STEM through many TJ courses such as Differential Equations, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Mechanics, and Organic Chemistry. Outside of his classes, he is part of the TJ Varsity Math Team, Science Olympiad Team, and Science Bowl Team. He cherishes his accomplishments on the AMC-10/12 exams, the USA Math Olympiad (USAMO), US National Chemistry Olympiad, Duke Math Meet, American Regions Mathematics League (ARML), and the Math Kangaroo, having represented the USA at their 2016 international math camp.
Aaditya is also an avid board game player. His love for applied mathematics and computation is in part as a result of his analysis of various card games and strategy board games. He also loves to play the piano. Over the past two summers, Aaditya has interned at a tech startup, where he worked on prototyping new features using Ruby on Rails, and a scientific consulting firm, where he worked on a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project applying higher math to systems of systems engineering.
Along with pursuing STEM as an individual, Aaditya also promotes STEM education and malaria awareness in the global community as the Chief Innovations Officer at Malaria Free World. Aaditya is an alumnus of the Nysmith School (K-6), Longfellow Middle School/Langley High School (7-8), and TJHSST (9-10).
