Year at UW: Second

Hometown: Albuquerque, New Mexico

About me: Hi! I'm a pre-med turned physics student from the beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico. It's my second year at UW. I live off campus, but really regret not joining the dorms for my first year. While I was pre-med, I did get a lot of experience volunteering and shadowing at various medical institutions. Unfortunately, I decided that I didn't enjoy medicine as much as I do Physics. I approach the subject from an appreciative and philosophical perspective (though I don't study philosophy formally!) and would love for you to strike up a conversation about that. I am also an intended Business Administration major. In the future, I would love to work more closely with some of the things I feel are most important in this age, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and interplanetary travel. I have two dogs and a puppy whom I share a lovely home with, and my idea of relaxing is cooking and eating with a close friend.
