Jacob Diehl

Currently, I am a sophomore majoring in Biochemistry. While my initial goal, when I began college was to pursue a career in medicine, my recent exposure to research has caused me to consider a career in science. I have always considered myself a curious individual, and in that respect, I feel as though a career as a researcher would suit me well. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and camping, as well as playing board games and spending time with my friends and family.
