Hello world, my name is Hanif Zaman! I'm a 12th grade student at Joseph Wheeler High's Magnet Program. I've always had a passion for learning about the microbial world since elementary school. My goal is to one day earn a Ph.D. and run my own lab (hopefully with a team of friendly lab rats wearing fancy lab coats). While I still have another 10 or so years until then, I've been working on my laboratory skills and research techniques. A few of my favorite courses I've taken are Advanced Scientific Internship/Research, Applications of Biotechnology, DNA/Genetics Research, and Organic Chemistry 1. While I may not be the smartest kid on the block, I definitely am the most passionate!
