Eric Zhu is currently a junior in the college studying Neurobiology, with minors in Health Care Management and Business Economics & Public Policy from the Wharton School. He was born in Beijing, China, but has lived most of his life in Japan, New Hampshire, and Ohio. On campus, he’s on the editorial board for SYNAPSE, Penn’s undergraduate healthcare journal, he competes on the travel team for the International Affairs Association, and he’s a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
With regards to policy, Eric has a strong passion for the intersection between the private and public sectors, and how both can work congruently to further mutual aims. He has a specific interest in programs with a humanitarian focus that aim to help populations that slip between the cracks. In his unfortunately limited free time, you can often find him taking quick naps, stuffing his face with Indian food, or otherwise enjoying the finer things in life.
