Jeremy Witmer (Yale Secondary grad 2009) spent four years at Yale, where he especially enjoyed the math and science instruction and AP classes. After graduating from Yale, Jeremy attended the University of British Columbia to do his undergraduate studies in Engineering Physics. During his time as an undergraduate Jeremy worked on research projects in nuclear physics, miniaturized microphone design, and nano-scale optics. Jeremy then went to Stanford University to do his PhD in nanophotonics, where his research focused on using nanotechnology to create a way to connect quantum computers (a new type of supercomputer) together into a quantum internet. After finishing his PhD, Jeremy will be joining Apple to do optics research and development.
Congrats to Ruky Agbahovbe who graduated from medical school (virtually). It has been a great six years since she graduated from Yale and she just wanted to send an immense thank you. Ruky says "Although I didn’t appreciate it at the time, the work ethic that I developed from chemistry classes truly made med school a piece of cake. As hard as it was, it still wasn’t as bad as the days that we would have homework, reading, a lab report due by the next day, and a quiz to study for!" Ruky was matched to her top choice residency program at UBC Psychiatry where she be starting work at St Pauls in July 2020!"
