About Me

I am a junior at Ward Melville H.S. where I am involved in the InSTAR research program. The topic of an optical magnetometer has come to my attention and I would like to build a working prototype.

I am on the Ward Melville Science Olympiad Team and currently hold first place in the NY tournament in Robot Ramble, an event that requires the construction and operation of a robot. Last year our team qualified and participated in the national tournament. This year, unfortunately, we came just 11 points short from going to nationals. We hope that next year we will do better.

In addition I study piano at the Manhattan School of Music. My other hobbies include chess, cards, and any other game involving development and employment of strategy. My favorite book is "And Quiet Flows The Don" by Mikhail Sholokhov and my favorite movie is "The Matrix."
