Alejandro Diaz
University of Chicago


My name is Alejandro Diaz, I was born and raised in Miami. Since I was young, I have always had an interest in mathematics. But it wasn’t until several years later, when I began to see the relationships between science and math, that I became truly captivated. The fact that everything in our universe could be broken down into numbers and have their behaviors predicted fascinated me. I intend to major in physics at the University of Chicago in order to further study these behaviors and better understand the laws that govern our universe, and I hope that in my future career I will contribute my own insights into this exciting field.
