As AlphaStar Academy, we are incredibly proud of having so many invaluable Alumni of A-Star/AlphaStar programs. Below, we are presenting some of them among thousands. We will be adding more soon.
Evan finished his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from MIT in 2018 and is currently working towards his PhD also in Mathematics at MIT. He received Honorable mention for the Morgan Prize in 2019. In high school, he participated in a lot of math competitions; became a winner for USAMO 2014 and earned a Gold Medal in IMO 2014. Fun fact: Evan took USAMO 2014 between 12:30am and 5:00am in Taiwan.
Since then Evan has continued helping the math community. To name a few of his roles, he is the USAMO editor-in-chief since 2019, USA team selection coordinator since 2017, and Math Olympiad Summer Program staff since 2016, and Math Olympiad coach since 2016. He is also the author of the book: Euclidean Geometry for Math Olympiads and streams olympiad problems on twitch.tv/vEnhance.
Evan took USAMO/MOP level classes from A-Star between 2012 and 2013, and participated in CHMMC and HMMT with A-Star teams between 2012 and 2014. He has taught AIME and USAMO level courses at A-Star camps in 2013 and 2014, and gave some guest lectures since then. He contributed to the A-Star curriculum for AIME, USA(J)MO, and Master courses.
Evan is an avid player of Hanabi and a devoted Arch Linux user.
Andrew is a student at MIT studying Math and Physics. In high school and college he has participated in many math competitions. Among his achievements are five times USA(J)MO qualification 2014-2018, MOSP qualification in 2016, and Putnam HM awards in 2018 and 2019. He also received two perfect scores on AMC10 and a perfect score on AIME.
Andrew participated in A-Star Summer camps and master classes in high school. He also participated in several math competitions including Princeton Math Competition, Caltech Harvey Mudd Math Competition, and Harvard-MIT Math Tournament with A-Star teams. In particular, he was on the legendary AlphaStar team who won the HMMT February 2018.
He taught several courses at AMC 10/12 and AIME levels at A-Star camps and designed the Geometry curriculum for MathCounts/AMC8/10/12 and AIME level courses. His favorite memories from A-Star are drawing enlightening geometry diagrams during classes and playing card games with teammates after math competitions.
Andrew is a big fan of music (of all genres, particularly classical and video game music) and of rhythm games.
