My name is Jaime Varela and I have lived a good part of my life in Texas, but in truth, I have moved around a lot, so I cannot really claim one place as my home. I have always had a passion for understanding how things work. From simple electronics to mechanical devices, I thirsted to understand the details of their mechanisms. That is why when I was introduced to physics, I fell in love with it. I feel that there is no greater puzzle to solve than the mystery that is our universe. This past year I attended MIT and will continue to do so next fall. I really love this place and being around people who share my interests.
