Albert is a second-year chemistry major from Irvine, California. During two summers of his high
school years, he worked with the Penner Group of the University of California, Irvine on
nanowire synthesis and applications, a fascinating experience that made him decide to study
chemistry at university. Albert spends most of his time either studying or working in the lab,
with some breaks for racquetball and intramural soccer and softball leagues. He will pursue a
career in research after completing his undergraduate study, but whether it will be chemistry
research and a Ph.D. or medical research in an M.D./Ph.D. program is yet to be determined.
