Ambiguity & Analog Circuits - June 2021 Newsletter

Ambiguity & Analog Circuits - June 2021 Newsletter
By Maggie Chua • Issue #3 • View online
Hey there! My name is Maggie and I am a 16-year-old working on creating ripples that will one day impact billions. I am fascinated by the potential of biocomputing, especially the idea of building synthetic circuits and modeling biological systems. I also like to explore topics such as climate change and philosophy in my free time.

Deep Dive into Analog Synthetic Circuits
This month, I spent time going down a rabbit hole exploring analog synthetic circuits and utilizing analog models of computation in synthetic biology!
A Brief Review of Analog Synthetic Circuits & Analog Computation in Living Cells | by Maggie Chua | Jun, 2021 | Medium
One of the biggest takeaways I got from this process was that I don’t know how to accept what I don’t know. A lot of times as we navigate difficult topics (and life) there’s a lot of ambiguity where there are no answers to the questions that we have. No matter how much we know and how much we learn in a certain area, there is always this deep chasm between what we know and what we don’t know.
And that’s normal. It’s just that this ambiguity stresses me out, whether it’s my own life (at times) or my knowledge on a topic that deeply interests me. Now that I’m aware of it, I’m working on learning what the root cause is and how I can start accepting it.
