Hi! I'm Noor.
Right now I’m studying Computer Science at Stanford. I’m interested in using CS to better understand the code for life (DNA), and engineering healthier humans.
Before Stanford, I started a digital health company called Remedy, that helped doctors get instant answers from specialists. From 2012-2014 I was part of a program for young entrepreneurs called the Thiel Fellowship.
I grew up outside of Washington, DC in the suburbs of Northern Virginia to two industrious immigrant parents from Pakistan. I’m very close to my older sister, Gina, (now an ER doctor!) and my younger brother, Samee, who is also studying CS.
