As a freshman at Baylor, Micheal began his career with KAST by establishing his own branch in Waco. His aims were, and still are, to inspire those to foster a love for learning and experimentation or, at the very least, an appreciation for the topic. Micheal’s fondest memory with KAST is when a young boy intentionally poured vegetable oil all over his new shoes, and the student exclaimed, “I wanted to see what would happen if the vegetable oil mixed with my shoes!”. Outside of KAST, Micheal is a postgraduate at the University of Liverpool studying materials science and genetics, where he is specifically interested in hydrogels and their applications towards improving medicine. He hopes to take what he learns to eventually open his own lab to advance healthcare.
