Career Interests

I hope to attend medical school next year. I want to become a physician but at I am unsure in what specialty, at this point.

Questions

  1. My favorite aspect of biology is the infinite amount of knowledge out there and the constant advances that are taking place. I also specifically enjoy genetics. I like to know why we are the way we are and how we get that way.
  2. My favorite aspect of math is that you can almost always come up with a definite answer. This makes math something that is often straightforward and universal.

Research
