My name is Luis Dilone, a Puerto Rican/Dominican from Bushwick, and I currently attend All City Leadership Academy. Hopefully that'll change soon though, as my life long dream has been to go to MIT! I find the concepts of evolutionary biology fascinating and want to work toward potentially discovering its origins. To achieve this I've also garnered computer science skills, this in attempts to model Early Earth conditions. SMRI has been amazing at exposing me to the scientific world. I now have access to resources, such as lab equipment and mentors, I otherwise would never have gotten. It has been such a great experience, one I will take with me in pursuing my dreams!
