Brief Biographical Sketch:

I've hiked mountains in Norway. Conducted interviews in Finnish. Lived for three months in Moscow. Oh, and I salsa dance, too.

Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I came to Stanford as a freshman in the fall of 2007. I'll be graduating this December with a bachelor's degree in international relations and a master's degree in civil and environmental engineering. Take my intro to calculus class and talk to me if you have any questions about what it's like to have a foot in both the "techie" and "fuzzy" worlds.

Does the word "calculus" scare or intimidate you? Fear no longer! Take this quick course and learn about one of the most important elements of calculus: the derivative. At the end, you'll be able to solve problems like this: $$\frac{d}{dx}\left(ax^{2}+bx+c\right)=?$$ How cool is that?
