- Favorite aspect of biology
- Biology is an academic discipline that is continually changing. New biotechnological advances and knowledge on living organisms are being discovered exponentially. What interests me about this facet of biology is the implications it has in the medical field.
- Favorite aspect of mathematics
- The study of mathematics involves an array of symbols, formulae, and logical arguments. What interests me about mathematics is the idea that it can be applied to the other sciences to explain natural phenomena.
