Hi guys! My name is Sunaina Addanki, and I will be the SI leader for physics 1. I am a pre-medical student with a biology/neuroscience double major, and chem/public health minor. As a senior, I have taken part in numerous organizations such as Children’s Advocates, a virtual tutoring initiative, Locks for Cause, a cancer awareness club, and Maasti, the Bollywood fusion competitive dance team. Three fun facts about me are that I used to competitively play badminton in high-school, I have travelled to 7 different countries, and I’m from Chicago! After having done SI for two semesters, I loved interacting with the students and implementing creative techniques to facilitate their learning. I am excited to see how I will be able to interact with students this semester virtually.
Hey everyone, my name is Patrick and I am from Miramar, Florida. I am currently a third year student majoring in Biology and minoring in Business and Honors Transdisciplinary Studies. I am also a member of the Honors College and the Dual Degree Osteopathic Medical program. I am serving as one of the SI leaders for Physics II. I chose to do SI because I believe facilitating learning in a collaborative environment encourages not just acquiring knowledge but mutual growth and empowerment. Currently, I conduct neuro-metabolic research at the Center for Collaborative Research, am a member of ScienceAlive, MEDLIFE, and the co-founder of a student-run community service organization at NSU called Children’s Advocates. Some fun facts about me is that I am Filipino, love reading philosophy, and have been playing the piano since the age of 5.
