Hey Y’all! I’m Joel Jimenez, one of the Math and Science Graduate Assistants for the Think Tank. I’m currently working on my Masters of Public Health with an emphasis on Epidemiology. I graduated from the U of A in May 2015 with my Bachelors degree in Biology with an emphasis on Biomedical Sciences. I sincerely enjoy science and learning, both of which I’m happy to be involved in here at the University of Arizona.
I am originally from Texas, but I’ve spent the last 4 years in Tucson. In the summers I spend my days as a lifeguard rescuing swimmers and working on my tan. When I’m not in class or working I like to lift weights, run, swim, longboard, and occasionally I play my guitar and ukulele.
So far my experience as a Graduate Assistant has been amazing, and I can’t wait to see what the future brings. You can usually find me hanging out in Bear Down Gym either by the GA area or in the computer lab. I’m the one with the longboard. If you need anything, just ask!
