Shangyi Zhu ’20
I try to balance my lifestyle in both passionate and rational ways. I enjoy watching my pet turtle wadding in its pond for hours or arguing with a bunch of people about weirdly soft boiled eggs. Either way, I grapple onto science by maintaining a curiosity for observation and logic deductions. For me, it really doesn’t cost much to be neurotic sometimes, because freeing my mental state allows me to see things out of the box.

I’ve always harbored a love for anatomy and the workings of the body. I also am passionate about visual arts and writing, and so I often combine these interests to present anatomy through creative means.
I am interested in physics, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

I’m really interested on the intersection of science and art, such as the works of Leonardo Da Vinci. Although these are generally viewed as two completely different things, I think that both disciplines can benefit from some of the qualities of the other. Architecture is a great example of this, as well as beautiful cars or motorcycles.

I enjoy computer science and studying mathematics. In my spare time, I like solving sudokus and playing NYT’s crossword puzzles.
Chieu An Duong ’22
I enjoy all arts: literature, performing, and visual. I have always been an avid reader (my favorite books are The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck: definitely recommended). I love listening to music and taking photos; so basically, I enjoy everything that pleases the human eyes and ears. I’m especially interested in how the arts affect our psyches and behaviors, and how technology and science interact with each other in our world.

A passionate student who plays the violin and is very interested in design and engineering.
Ben Chen ’21
I’m rather effervescent at times and mellow during others, and in general, I’m a mix of both of those extremes. I also love building things in the iLab, because it’s truly enjoyable to be able to craft things with your own hands and be able to call it your own when you finish.

I am someone that likes simplicity and the process of achieving it. Science is the act of breaking complex phenomena down into manageable components that clarifies understanding. To truly understand something is to embrace confusion and to find a way out of it. I would say I prefer taking things apart than building them, such as observing an event then trying to explain in it.
