Bio: Hi! I am a senior from Belgium with a love for nature and adventure. During the summer, I do scuba diving and I try to save our home from destruction by our Border Collie puppy. On campus, you can find me at the climbing wall or tutoring chemistry and math for McGraw. I am also part of the ballroom team and spend my first week back in September leading frosh trip for OA. 

I love biology, with a focus on quantitative ecology and marine biology, but I have also a strong interest in art history, especially in art from Ancient Egypt. I am still not sure if I want to continue to grad school, med school or something else, but it will be somewhere in Europe, maybe England or Spain.

Email me at jp22@princeton.edu if you want to talk about anything from the new course in environmental studies to crazy study abroad ideas or the best place to go backpacking in the Alps.
