Howdy! My name is Horton Richard and I am a sophomore from Dallas, TX majoring in Biochemistry and minoring in Chemistry. I hope to get a Ph.D. and pursue biochemical research as a career. My goal is to spend my life making scientific advances in a field that I can be passionate about. Through Explorations, I hope to gain more exposure to the world and nuisances of scientific publication.
