My name is Sergio Mundo. I was born in Alexandria, Virginia, but raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I decided to study physics because I love to learn how the universe works and how to describe it, and because I enjoy tackling problems and challenges of a scientific or mathematical nature. This past year, I attended MIT, where I had an excellent experience as a freshman and where I will spend my next academic year. Some things I like to do in my spare time are playing the violin, watching and playing soccer, and hanging out with friends.
