Favorite Aspect of Biology
My favorite aspect of biology is its interconnectedness. I also love being able to explore past research outside of classes. Click the link to see one of my favorite papers on Tricotyly by Robert Guess. Robert_Guess_1975.pdf
Favorite Aspect of Computer Science
I like learning how to use computer programs that are applicable to my field. I also really enjoy making maps and editing photographs.
