My background:

Earlier in my life, I spent a lot of time studying for mathematics competitions. In my sophomore year of high school, I switched to studying physics, and that's what I've been doing since. I have participated in various physics competitions, and I plan to major in physics as an undergraduate!

Original projects:

Here are some problems that I've researched for fun. You might find some of the math to be not as interesting, but I have a lot of interesting pictures and plots that you might find interesting as a casual reader. But if you're really interested by it, don't be daunted by the math! Most of it is at a basic calculus level.

Fun questions:

These are some intriguing questions I've written about. Some of them are questions I've come up on my own - others are just fascinating things that I've come across in my reading.

Miscellaneous projects:

These are fun physics-related projects that I've done over the years that don't necessarily examine a particular question.
