Brief Biographical Sketch:

I think it's really cool when I can actually use something I learned in school in my real life. Like how after learning about toughness in materials science I could evaluate the varying toughness of gummy bears, Twizzlers, and gum. Or how after learning geometry I can use string, a protractor and the parallel line theorem to discover whether stage legs are parallel. I want to teach you guys something that you will use in non-academic settings. In my free time, I love watching Golden Girls reruns and drinking bubble tea with friends.
