Born and raised in the multicultural Silicon Valley, Albert became accustomed from an early age to observing how differences in culture and background affected peoples' lives. In Baltimore, Athens, and rural China, he began to see how these social variables could influence people's health, quality of life, and life expectancy. To understand what role he can play in righting the health inequities he saw, both in his own family and in society, he pursued an education at Johns Hopkins University, studying human behavior and neuroscience, before starting TKI with Jake and Pat.
Albert intends to lead TKI to become a research, education, and policy think tank that can cover underserved or unaddressed issues in healthcare and beyond, using the research tools gained from years of study at Johns Hopkins and other institutions. An avid writer, he believes in the power of clear, digestible prose in conveying and clarifying ideas important to the public's decision-making, and will strive to make TKI an independent and reliable mouthpiece for America's citizens.
