Vishal Patel is currently a junior at Boston University’s College of Arts. He is seeking his BA in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB). He hopes to partake in either the Teach for America or Teach for India program, after completing his academics. Eventually he hopes to pursue a career in medicine, preferably one that allows him to travel the world.
Recently he has developed a passion for education. This passion brought him to Tanzania, Africa this past summer where he spent a month in a rural area tutoring children in English. He plans to return this December to continue his work and again in May to conduct formal research on education development in developing countries. This same passion has led him to the Innoworks, which allows him to share his experiences in science with the Boston community.
In his free time you can find Vishal at the basketball courts playing some pick up basketball or playing squash with roommate, Parth Patel.
