Berwyn native Aaron Lee is one of 13 valedictorians in Dartmouth College’s Class of 2022 who earned a cumulative GPA of 4.0 during their time at the Ivy League school.

“These outstanding student-scholars exemplify the depth and scope of the liberal arts,” said Elizabeth Smith, Dean of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences at Dartmouth. “On behalf of the faculty, I congratulate them on all that they have achieved at Dartmouth and wish them the best in all their future pursuits.”

Lee, a Conestoga High School graduate, double-majored in Mathematics and Economics. His academic interests in pure math, macroeconomics, game theory, statistics, and machine learning “converge around the theme of trust,” he said. “How can we ensure that our research findings are as robust and understandable as possible, especially when the models we use are difficult to interpret?”

As a section editor at The Dartmouth, the daily student newspaper, Lee was responsible for data journalism and surveys, writing numerous stories covering student opinions on politics and the decisions of the college’s administration.

Lee is also a pianist, having played with the Dartmouth College Wind Ensemble and performed large-scale works by Stravinsky, Beethoven, and Ravel at a solo senior recital this spring.

Lee, who has completed internships with Amazon, Chubb, and Jane Street, plans to move to New York City as a full-time quant trader at Five Rings Capital.
