Leader Bio

Ramiz is a rising junior living in Eliot House and studying Applied Mathematics and Economics with a secondary in Philosophy. As a proud Quebecer from Montreal, he can often be found discussing why Canadian French is great or convincing his friends to visit Canada (and Montreal instead of Toronto, of course.) He also has family living in India and Pakistan, where his parents grew up, and in the United States. His academic interests include monetary policy, financial economics, statistics and the history of philosophy. Outside of the classroom, Ramiz is a member of Harvard’s Fed Challenge team, a secretariat member for Harvard’s World Model United Nations conference and an Econ research assistant. To relax, he loves travelling, discussing whacky ideas with friends, discovering new music, and exploring the city in search of new coffee shops. During his time at home, he has also been cooking lots of Indian dishes and watching an unhealthy amount of Netflix. As someone who cherishes the friends he met during FIP, he’s beyond excited to meet the new FIPers from the class of 2024 and introduce them to all the things he loves about Harvard!
