Hey I'm Tomiwa
I'm a software engineer and I like to make useful things.
I'm also the founder of Atila, an ed-tech website that makes it easy to start and get scholarships.
Proteinqure is a biotech startup that
uses computational biology, physics and machine learning methods to design protein-based drugs.
My role as a software research engineer is a multidisciplinary combination of software engineering, machine learning, and computational biology.
The Education Freedom Program
is an idea I had to make the education system higher quality and more affordable for all students.
Summary: students should be able to maintain their enrollment at an education institution as long as they take one course there, while allowing them to get other course credits at different schools across the country.
I started an interview, podcast series. Where we interview young people
(most of which are commonly referred to as "millenials") doing unique and interesting things.
We talk about their education, career and life story.
In the first episode I interviewed Emily Chen:
Emily and I talk about how she got into U of T medical school without a degree, advice for students studying pre med programs and the importance of work life balance and self care.
In the sixth episode I interviewed Paul Okundaye:
Paul is an incoming management consultant at Bain and Company.
Before that he was an investment banking summer analyst at RBC after declining an interview at Goldman Sachs and founder of a food delivery company called Dine Easy.
In this episode we talk about why he chose investment banking and consulting and if he was chasing prestige or doing what he genuinely enjoyed. We talked about how he feels when people say “you only got an opportunity because you’re black or because you’re a woman”, why he left banking to join consulting and much more.
