Brief Biographical Sketch:

Alright, so a bit about me before you get here.
My name...should be somewhere on this page, so I won't say it again.
I'm a freshman this year, fresh out of high school and eager for some higher-level education.
I've always enjoyed physics, and I love to tell others who also enjoy physics what I know.
And that's where you come in (to the students). You'll be on the receiving end of my enthusiastic rants. Hopefully, you'll have as much fun listening (and perhaps doing) as I will talking.
I'm pretty easygoing, too, so please don't hesitate to talk to me.

I was born in China, and lived in Switzerland before I came to the United States. I lived in Oklahoma for 5 years before I came to MIT.
In my spare time, I enjoy video games (perhaps more than I should) and reading my latest issue of Physics Today.
