I am a rising sophomore pursuing a B.S. in Biology and Computational & Applied Mathematics & Statistics. For as long as I can remember I've always wanted to be a scientist both because of my love of learning and because of my desire to change the world. I'm especially excited to work on iGem this summer because synthetic biology is a relatively young field and there is a lot that we don't know yet. Additionally synthetic biology is a field that has a lot of potential to change the future of medicine and the world at large. In my spare time I enjoy perusing local culture forums to consume and create various image and text based communications, as well as learning highly specific useless facts and playing tennis.
