Shehzan Maredia

Founder and Inventor

 United States

I enjoy distilling problems to their foundations and innovating solutions using technology. I believe that by collaborating with people with shared visions, I can create solutions to help the world, and that is want to continue doing.

I have worked on some interesting ventures. In high school, I founded CrucialLearning, an education-tech platform for higher-level competition training (acquired), and I also founded two nonprofits, CleanHoover and KidsWhoCode, to help address issues of environment and education in my community respectively. I also researched aging by using bioinformatics tools to find impacts of specific metabolomic pathways on longevity.

I'm a student at Duke, and there, I've grown my knowledge of computer science, math, and engineering, by taking on projects related to self-driving car software, creating models to assess ESG scores of startups, developing quantitative trading algorithms, building an automated system to suppress fires, and more.

Over the past year, I took time away from Duke. I founded and helped develop a contact tracing solution for COVID-19, ContainIt (merged to NOVID), and also built a platform to connect innovators to teams, Joinly.

I'm currently exploring solutions for the next problem I want to work on. I look forward to meeting people through this platform.
