Juan Pablo "JP" Ocampo

2012 Mentor

My name is Juan Pablo Ocampo but most of my friends call me JP.

I'm an undergraduate Freshman at Caltech and I plan to study Mechanical Engineering and Business and Economics Management double major.

I'm Colombian and can speak Spanish, so if you wanna practice let me know. I like to play all kinds of sports. Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, Basketball, you name it. The only thing that matters is to remember to have fun. I'm always up for some sort of activity outside.

My research experience is limited as I have begun my first research project this year working towards passive heating/cooling and insulation for houses.

I'm a pretty outgoing person, and at the same time serious about my work. I graduated from Cypress Bay High School in Weston, Florida and was in the top ten of my class of 967. I have always been interested in math and physics. I have gone to regional, invitational, state, and national math competitions and places top ten at each. I have also gone to regional and state Science Olympiad competitions.
