  • Scholarship in 2016 at Harvard University

Gary Choi is a Ph.D. Candidate in Applied Mathematics in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University, where he works with Prof. L. Mahadevan and Prof. Chris Rycroft.

He obtained his B.Sc. (First Class Honors) and M.Phil. in Mathematics from The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in 2014 and 2016 respectively, and S.M. in Applied Mathematics from Harvard University in 2019. He was a Croucher Scholar from 2016 to 2019.


His research interests include applied and computational geometry, interdisciplinary mathematical modeling, quantitative biology, medical imaging, origami and kirigami metamaterial design, geometry processing, and scientific computing.
