Alumni Profile - Ayush Tambde, Class of 2023

NEWS / 7 March 2024

Class of 2023 Ayush Tambde won the prize for Best Individual at BTYSTE with his project, 'Analysis of single-cell proteomic data to understand the mechanisms of oncogenic transformation and how to control them'. He also won the Horizon Student Award for the best overall Biological and Ecological project.

Ayush has twice been named one of the Top 30 under 30 in tech by the Sunday business Post.

You left Stratford College in 2023, what have you been up to since?

I started my physics course at UCD back in September, so I’ve been a bit busy with that. Earlier this year I received an Emergent Ventures Fellowship to support my AI projects, and to pay for a trip to Boston/San Francisco, where I met cool people doing amazing things, including startup founders, professors, students and many more. Boston is an epicentre for biotech, and I was lucky enough to have been given a tour around the Broad Institute and witness first-hand how groundbreaking research is conducted.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do?
I’ve been pretty set on physics since my early quantum computing days back in third year. Everything else is downstream, it encourages first-principles thinking, and most potentially world altering technologies (fusion, quantum materials, AI etc.) are rooted in physics. So choosing to pursue it further was a no brainer.

What’s your favourite school memory?

The Paris Trip in 6th year (2023) was pretty awesome. Particularly memorable were the museums and the evening walk down the Champs-Élysées.

Any advice for our students today?

I’d repeat some of the best piece of advice I got, which is to “hone your craft”. Find something (or things) you’re interested in and become the best in the world at it.
