A brief summary of my life/experience follows. I completed my undergraduate (bachelor's) degree at Yale University, in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. In the meantime, I learned enough computer stuff that I did some IT consulting (basically, net and *nix admin). Then I got an MBA/MS in Finance from Temple University, and now I'm in a PhD program in Finance, also at TU. I've also been known to have some interest in anime, computer games, and open source software. I keep myself moving with ping-pong and martial arts.

And that about covers it in terms of subject matter where I may be at least half-way competent to contribute something.

On occasion, I teach undergraduate finance as part of my graduate assistantship work. Thanks to the encouragement and organizational support provided by the Eduzendium project, one of the course projects is writing an article for Citizendium. See the course project site if you are curious.

The following is a list of some articles that I notice are somewhat sparse on WP, and think I can start/contribute to here.

Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun!
