Rishiraj Tripathy

Market Research Analyst, Product R&D, Webmaster

Hi! I'm Rishi, and I'm a freshman at Duke studying Biomedical Engineering and Global Health. I'm from Plainsboro, NJ, and my passions include music and basketball. I could probably survive solely on Taco Bell. My real goal, though, is to somehow change the world for the better (maybe with AKALA!)

Felix Su

Hey there! My name is Felix. I'm currently a 3rd year studying Computer Science at Berkeley and I call Plainsboro, NJ my home. I love to play guitar, sing, shoot hoops, and travel. After studying abroad this summer, Nice, France has risen to the top of my favorite cities list.
