I am a 19 (at the moment)-year-old student, currently studying Engineering at Trinity Hall, Cambridge. In the summer of 2002 I attended the International Physics (in Bali, Indonesia) and Biology (in Latvia) Olympiad competitions. I like all kinds of science, especially when they can be used to do something useful or aesthetically pleasing. I collect minerals and bizarre plants, because I am attracted to atypical objects. I enjoy making interesting Lego Technic models, especially when controlled by computers, and electronics. I also play the flute (badly) and occasionally write things (even worse).
