Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an academic at heart. I perform biomedical research, and I am
always excited to learn about new work in the field. I'm also very
concerned (if less well-informed) about social justice, and I alway
enjoy expanding my intellectual horizons.
But I don't spend all my time locked away in an ivory tower. I like
sports, especially tennis, soccer, and running, and I love a good
night out on the town. Whether it's for a serious conversation or
just a bit of light-hearted banter, it's always fun to meet
interesting new people.
I am motivated, active, and thoughtful
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently in my second year of a combined MD/PhD program. It's
going to be a while, but I enjoy the day to day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding unintentional humor in everyday situations. Acknowledging
the comedies of the day to day makes life much more enjoyable. I

When you work in the sciences, you start to take an amazing amount
of jargon for granted. It's suprisingly hard to avoid the

Movies: An occassional comedy or action flick is nice. My friends
are amazingly good at convincing me to see the worst movies (I
mean, how many people actually watched 10,000 BC?).
TV: I haven't had one for a long time, but Netflix is there for me
if I need a fix.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social justice. A large part of my interest in medicine/research is
to contribute to the betterment of other's lives. However, properly
prioritizing our citizens by reforming and investing in
infrastructure, healthcare, and education could likely improve far
more lives than any equivalent investment in biomedical research
(at least in the near future). What good are new therapies to the
multitude lacking the essentials for health and happiness?
On a typical Friday night I am

For a short period in high school I had terrible, long hair...
