We are originally four medical students attending the University of Utah School of Medicine. We love Anki, but found it very difficult to use at first. We originally made a few videos to help our classmates and eventually decided to keep making tutorials so we could share with all Anki users worldwide. Many of us are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all of us believe that serving others is what brings true happiness. We hope you enjoy everything we have put together for you!
Nick & Meg
Nick graduated from BYU with a degree in Neuroscience after serving a 2 year proselyting mission in Taiwan. He still loves to study Mandarin Chinese in addition to playing Super Smash Bros, swing dancing and traveling. He's the voice of most of the AnKing YouTube videos :) He is completing residency in Dermatology at Geisinger in Pennsylvania.
Meghan (the AnQueen) graduated from BYU with a degree in Physical Education. She loves outdoor adventures, ice cream and the beach.

MEMBER SUPPORT TEAM
I attended Utah Valley University where I received my Bachelors in Biology and also met my wonderful wife. I was blessed with the opportunity to attend Rocky Vista University in St. George, Utah. My decision to attend medical school was driven by my desire to understand, learn, and master anesthesia. Fun fact about me: I have been attacked by a shark before 🦈
Before starting medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (McGovern Medical School), I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2019 with a degree in Biochemistry. My interests in medicine lie primarily in the field of cancer care and I intend to pursue a position in a radiation oncology residency program. When I am not studying or doing research I love to play my cello, spend time in the outdoors, and play board/card games with my wife and family.
Hey everyone I'm Logan. I'm excited to be a new member of the Anking team; they've pretty much saved my medical school bacon up to this point, so I'm happy to do a bit to return the favor. I completed my undergrad in Human Biology at BYU-Idaho, and am currently at UUSOM. I change my mind about specialty depending on the most recent physician I've interacted with, but at the moment I'm interested in Family Medicine. Just a little bit about me: I am married to my high school "friend zone" and we have two kids. I really like to fish and I enjoy a good slice of yellow cake with chocolate frosting every now and then (or everyday).
Jonathan is a medical student at RVUCOM. Before medical school, Jonathan worked as a Network Administrator and as a Financial Analyst at Sorenson Capital. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Biology at Utah Vally University. While attending RVUCOM, he took a gap year to complete a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Utah. He plans to work as a physician and create medical devices. Jonathan enjoys Board games, 3D Printing, Scuba Diving, and Rock Climbing.
I’m a research software engineer working on microbiome data science software for the Pathogen Microbiome Institute at Northern Arizona University in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona 🧬. I previously provided technical support to Fluent Forever Anki users and have used Anki extensively to study pre-med, music, computer science, and Dutch. As a former AFS exchange student, I’ve spent nearly two years living abroad in the Netherlands . I’m interested in contemplative practices, effective altruism, and am currently developing a unique mnemonic system . Working with the AnKing team has inspired me to consider going back to school to pursue an education in traditional osteopathy 🥼
I'm Daniel, a medical student at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. I graducated from the University of Tenessee with a degree in Chemical Engineering. I love problem solving, especially in the context of medicine. Over the years I've worked in several roles developing software for clinicians, researchers, and engineers alike. In my spare time I enjoy weightlifting, hiking and working on home improvement projects.
Hello! My name is Yoonchae, and you may know me as BlueGreenMagick. I'm an undergraduate student at Seoul National University planning to major in Computer Science. I'm interested in human cognition and machine learning. I love trying out and learning new things. I've developed several add-ons and made contributions to Anki. I'm excited to work with the AnKing team!
Hello! My name is Jakub and I'm a computer science student at the technical university of Vienna. I'm creating add-ons for Anki and use it myself for my studies, but also to learn various other things for example Russian and cyber security. I like programming, running and strategy games.
ANKI MASTERY COURSE TEAM
Hello! My name is Guillem Palau Salva. My first name is William in English language. My last name is Palau, can you guess the meaning? Palace! I'm a PhD student in Biomedicine from Barcelona, Spain. I have been using Anki since 2009 and contributing to the project since 2016. I am an avid learner. I used Anki to learn a broad range of topics, particularly for my formal college studies and Japanese language. I’d be thrilled to contribute with all the wisdom I accumulated across the years about Anki, mnemonics and efficient learning methods which are not that intuitive.
Hey everyone, My name is Abdulla! I’m a third year student in Virginia, currently doing rotations. Before med school, I got my biology degree from UVA, and I took 2 gap years to work as a scribe. During my gap years, I did a lot of stand-up comedy and even hosted my own show. Beyond medicine, I’m very passionate about beatboxing, which I have been doing for almost 10 years. I’ve traveled to a few beatbox battles around the country and even competed once! I love to help other students when I can, and I’m excited to be a part of the team
Hi! My name is Matt and I’m from Salzburg, Austria. I pursued a bachelor’s degree in software engineering before I decided to start studying medicine at MedUni Vienna. Back then, Anki played a major role in my preparation for the entrance exam and I’ve been obsessed with that piece of software ever since. When I’m not hacking away on Anki note templates or trying to help out in the forum, I like to engage in various sports: kickboxing, skiing and paragliding are some of my favorites. I’m very excited to help spread the love for Anki to a broader audience over the coming years!
Ash & Telyn
A bit about the Peterson Clan:
Dad likes road trips and microphones because they both mean a captive audience. He’s routinely involved in just about every extra curricular he can possible fit in his life. He just finished medical school at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Southern Utah and is headed for a Prelim Year in San Antonio with the Air Force. He wants to be an entrepreneur/doctor when he grows up, but may skip the growing up part.
Mom is an organizing champion and is really the one running the show. She finished her MBA in 2016 and has her own catering business that is mostly a really good excuse to bake in an unrestricted manner. She’s trained as a professional chef and has a knack for all things baking.
Thing 1’s name is James and he loves all things outdoors almost as much as his favorite cartoon shows. He wants to be a paleontologist-scientist-fireman-mailman when he grows up.
Thing 2’s name is Savannah, but we call her Coco. No one is 100% sure why. She talks almost as much as daddy, but has twice the attitude and is in love with shoes.
SOCIAL MEDIA / MARKETING / DESIGN TEAM
👋🏼 Hi everybody, I’m David! I’m a med student about to begin my third year rotations in Arkansas. During undergrad I initially pursued computer science, but ended up falling in love with exercise science and earning my bachelors degree from BYU.
Outside of medicine, I dedicate a lot of my time towards trying to embarrass my kids at their soccer games #number1fan😆 I also enjoy playing basketball, disc golf, hiking and cycling 🚴🏽♂️💨.
I’m really excited to be helping other students and to contribute to this incredible community!
Hey everyone, I’m Marissa! I personally could not survive medical school without Anki and I am excited to help work on the AnKing social media team in order to teach other students about Anki and share tips and tricks. For my undergraduate degree, I majored in Biology and Global Health at WashU. I am currently a second year medical student at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, playing soccer, going to workout classes, hiking, shopping, and going to brunch!
Hello, everyone. My name is Luís, I am a third-year medical student at the Federal University of Parana, in Brazil. I'm passionate about statistics, computer science and educational psychology, with a special interest in spacing effect and active recall, the foundations of our beloved Anki. During the last few years, I have acquired a lot of experience with the software, and I even had the opportunity to teach an extension course at my university about it.
I really enjoy studying philosophy and mythology, that's why I created a YouTube channel about those subjects. I ended up gaining a lot of background in graphic design and audiovisual editing, one of my jobs around here! Besides that, I love sculpting, watching anime, and learning languages.
