Hi there! My name is John-Paul Angulo, but most people just call me JP. I have a Master's degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in Environmental Health Sciences. Additionally, I have a Bachelor's degree from UC Santa Barbara in Environmental Science and a minor in Professional Scientific writing. I currently work at an aerospace company as an Environmental Health Engineer. I have experience working in the realm of environmental science, occupational health, education, and as a scientific writer. In my academic career, I have worked on publishing academic papers to a journal regarding disease incidence in underground miners, on air quality projects, city water analysis, and more. In my free time, I like to hike, snowboard, swim, be outside, and enjoy the company of friends. I am an easy-going, yet driven teacher that will help guide students to accomplish their projects and goals.
