"What encourages my scientific interests has never been the end-goal of a specific profession, but always the pursuit of knowledge, elucidating truths, and a drive to participate in the forefront of science. I got involved in research because of my interests in math and science, and a particular interest in the biological sciences and their applications. I am fascinated with the living world and can appreciate the power the advancement of biological research has to influence it."
