Class of ’19
Hey! My name’s Ankur, and I’m a sophomore studying Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science. I’m a Chicago native, a huge foodie (deep dish over all others), and an obsessive fan of music festivals. Along with my major and minor, I’m doing research with Dr. Mel in the Laboratory for Neural Computation. Outside of class, I’m involved with Spark SC, USC’s student-driven hub for entrepreneurship and innovation, HackSC, USC’s largest annual hackathon, and research with the Laboratory of Neural Computation, where I’m working on building higher-capacity neural networks to represent the brain. If I’m not busy studying or working on projects, you can probably find me longboarding around campus, grabbing a milkshake at Ground Zero, or relaxing at McCarthy Quad.

My Favorite Shows
Westworld is my favorite show on right now. A blend of western and sci-fi, this is hands-down one of the most interesting watches of the year so far.
Even though it’s over, Breaking Bad will always be one of my favorite shows. Did you know Vince Gilligan gave a talk on campus last year? I got to go and it was incredible.
A thought-provoking exploration of how technology will impact our future, Black Mirror is an anthology series of enclosed stories on Netflix. It’s also one of the best shows on anywhere right now.
