Rolando La Placa
Harvard University


I am Rolando La Placa from Caguas, Puerto Rico, studying Physics at Harvard University. I have always wondered a lot of things about nature and everything that surrounds us. For me, Physics is the best answer we have to the questions of who we are and why the universe behaves as it does. It has been a fundamental part of the knowledge of humanity for centuries, and it is a solid foundation for all of the sciences.
