chrisaldrich on BME Transfers? -
"Make sure you spend a few minutes from time to time in Cathy Jancuk's office to let her know and register your interest. She can also give you the best advice about changing and how to handle advising and timing. You don't really start taking BME specific classes until your junior year, so until then it doesn't matter a whole lot. In the meanwhile make sure you're taking all the appropriate pre-reqs. When you're ready to make the switch pull the appropriate trigger to put the paperwork in motion. In case you need it, make sure you've got a backup plan to be an EE, ME, CE major or one of the other related-BME program majors." - Chris Aldrich

I think I should stop reading several journals, magazines, and newspapers and just follow @jafurtado and his excellent Twitter feed.
Is anyone else using @RapGenius or @PoetryGenius for digital humanities? #dhsocal

chrisaldrich on Science AMA Series: I'm Chris Adami, the guy that figured out what happens to information in black holes. Ask me anything! -
"Given your background in information theory, computer science, and physics, what can you say about the potential unification about the concept of entropy in these fields? That is, the equations for entropy are all fairly similar, but have different semantic applications in each of the fields. Are they all the same as E.T. Jaynes would indicate? Why does so much of the literature seem to divorce Shannon's entropy from that of statistical mechanics? Where does Kolmogorov entropy fit into this picture?" - Chris Aldrich
Why should I attend JHU over other schools? -

"Christoph, Thanks for the AMA! There are a few small references to math in the comments already, but for the budding scientists out there, can you outline the math curriculum you followed in university and graduate school? What math have you studied following this?" - Chris Aldrich
