Tony Liu, YC’2020 Physics (Intesive) major with Distinction, was named a Knight-Hennessy Scholar at Stanford. From Yale News, May 7, 2021 “Four civic-minded alumni named Knight-Hennessy Scholars at Stanford”:

Tony Liu, from Dallas, Texas, graduated from Yale with a B.S. in physics. He is interested in supporting those facing severe neuropsychiatric conditions in pursuing meaningful, self-determined lives. To that end, he aspires to develop treatments that target precisely localized brain circuits at the optimal times to repair dysfunction. In labs at Yale, he helped develop protein tools that glow when brain cells are active, and applied those tools to improve understanding of computation in small brain circuits. He has interned on the healthcare/AI research team of a Chinese venture capital firm, and at the University of California-San Francisco performed biomarker discovery on the clinical trial team developing the first closed-loop neuromodulation therapy for treatment-resistant depression. He served as a public psychiatry fellow at the Connecticut Mental Health Center and is a recipient of the Goldwater Scholarship.
