Radio electronics has been one of my long term interests since high school. My experience with this include electronic equipment servicing (this helped me to defray some of my expenses while I was an undergraduate) and electronic equipment building, I am also an amateur radio operator holding a General Class license.
Engineering and medical applications of scientific principles. One specif ic area that I have recently become interested in is the effects of low level electromagnetic fields on biological systems. This is an area which I would like to devote some study to in the future.
Recreational pursuits include camping and swimming
