Hi, I'm Daniel! I'm currently an Associate Professor of Philosophy at Duke University (China). I have a BA and an MS in Computer Science and an MPhil and a PhD in Philosophy. I've been teaching philosophy at the university level for more than a decade and over the past four years, because of demand, I've also been teaching computer science. On top of this I'm coaching a team of high school students to compete in the next American Computer Science League competition.

Stephanie J., Intern (Columbia University)



Hey! I’m Stephanie and I am a sophomore at Columbia University where I play Division 1 soccer. Some things I used to despise but now love are sparkling water, hiking, animated tv shows, and plant-based food. I prefer hot weather to cold, but I’ll always choose refreshing food over something like soup. My current passion project is expanding my business selling original stickers, but I’m thinking of pivoting to selling handmade clay charm earrings.
