## Questions

1. What is your favorite aspect of biology and why?
• 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. What is your favorite aspect of mathematics and why?
• 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.
• I am a little concerned that I have not taken a math class, calculus 2, in three years. Therefore I may not be familiar with the math concepts in the class.
4. Is there anything else you would like the instructors to know?
• I do not think so.

## Research

Example of a Green Roof, Chicago City Hall

I have been doing plant research with Dr. Drennan for the past two years. I have been testing the thermal tolerance of two succulent plants: Dudleya and Sedum. I have been comparing the plants' usefulness in green roofs.
