I am currently a high school sophomore at the Westridge School for Girls in Pasadena, California. I have loved math for as long as I can remember, and hope to be enjoy its beauty always. I became interested in combinatorics as a freshman, and started investigating derangements using different techniques. With my advisor, Dr. John Woo, we developed a binomial inversion approach to tackling problems of derangments, and presented this work at the Spring Southern California meeting of the MAA at Caltech in 2002, where I was the lone high schooler presenting. That was very intimidating, but also thrilling.
