Biography[edit | edit source]
Hi there! My name is Lewis Marshall. I'm currently an Undergraduate Student at Michigan Tech working on a Bachelor's Degree in Materials Science Engineering, after which I will be pursuing a PhD in the same field. I previously attended Oxford High School, and have earned an International Baccalaureate Diploma, which gives me an open, analytical and contemplative view of the world.
Making the technology of today accessible to everyone is the best way to bring about peace and prosperity. We'r here to help do that!
