Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hello and nice to meet you!

My name is Iman Lynn Mamdouh, I am 20 years old and I study at Macaulay Honors College at CUNY Hunter College. My academic interests are in sustainable development and globalization which all stem from my Advanced Placement Environmental Science (APES) class I took in my senior year of high school. My love for the social aspects of science led me to major in Urban and Social Geography and minor in Environmental Studies. For someone who comes from a cultural background that is an amalgamation of various international cultures, I enjoy learning new languages and reading about international lifestyles. My life goal is to be an ambassador for businesses and governments that wish to provide goods and services in an environmentally sustainable manner that is also sensitive to the cultural and geographical differences of the world.

H53: An Introduction to the Korean Language in Splash 2018 (Mar. 10, 2018)
Though it is very much impossible to learn an entire language in one class day, we will instead have an introduction to the origins to the Korean language as well as learn some simple words and phrases. Aaaand I might just bring in a Korean snack for everyone :)

S9: Biogeography. Biodiversity. Bio. Bio. Bio! in Splash 2017 (Mar. 25, 2017)
What happens when you merge biology with geography? You get biogeography! And what is the connection between biogeography and biodiversity? I will answer these and many more questions as we touch upon concepts like Pangea, Geology, Biogeography, Biodiversity, Migration, Niche, and Invasive Species. No previous knowledge of these terms are necessary, I will walk you through all of it! By the end of the class, you'll see how truly connected the flora and fauna across our globe is and how it interacts with processes and changes on Earth, to conclude that nature is far from random.
