Personal Interests and Hobbies
- What is your favorite aspect of biology and why?
- Biology is constantly a constantly evolving field, with modern biology making new discoveries at a faster pace than ever before. It is particularly exciting to consider the practical applications of these discoveries in different fields such as biotechnology, bioinfomatics, and medicine.
- What is your favorite aspect of computer science and why?
- Computer science embodies the intersection between creativity and logical thinking. It is an incredibly important part of today's society as almost all modern technologies require optimization through computer science to some degree. My favorite part of studying computer science is the process of creation; starting with a blank page, and after a few hours, creating a functional program that could entertain or make another process more efficient is incredibly exciting.
This page was created with the help of Dr. Kam D. Dahlquist as well as a previously constructed user page on XMLPipeDB. Some parts of this page was constructed with my partner, Matthew Oki. While I worked with the people noted above, this individual journal entry was completed by me and not copied from another source.
