About Christian Luca

Christian is studying at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) as a distance-learning student in the Professional Science Master's program in health physics. The branch of physics called health physics concerns itself with the interactions of radiation and the environment. His hobbies include listening to classical music, and playing the piano and/or trombone whenever he gets the chance. In 2011, he married Cassaundra, and they have a beautiful, 14-month old daughter, Eliana, and currently live in Cleveland, Ohio--a great city for classical music opportunities, and the home of the Cleveland Orchestra!
