Anthony Ho received a B.S. in Engineering Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he performed researched molecular dynamics simulations of DNA in solid-state and biological pores. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D in computational biophysics at Stanford. When he is not working, he enjoys climbing stuff, including cliffs, boulders, and buildings.
