I work in the Mathematics Department at Loyola Marymount University. I learned about OpenWetWare from class, and I've joined because my class requires it.


  • I am currently working towards a Bachelor of Science in Biomathematics.
  • I am expected to graduate in May 2014.

Career Interests

  • After much deliberation, and jumping around from field to field, I have currently decided to try and go to Law School to become a family lawyer.


Favorite Part of Mathematics
  • Differential Equations is the most interesting part of mathematics for me because each problem is like solving a puzzle to try and get back to the original function.
Favorite Part of Biology
  • Human Anatomy and Physiology is my favorite field of Biology. I find that learning about how the body and all of the systems in the body work to be the most interesting part of Biology.
Additional Questions
  1. Do you have any worries or concerns about this class at this point?
    I think learning all of the computer stuff might be a challenge, but it is one I know I will be able to succeed with.
  2. Is there anything else you would like the instructors to know?
    There is nothing else I can currently think of.
