I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. While majoring in Biology at the University of Puerto Rico at Aguadilla, I found a passion for both research and teaching. My research affinity is towards the biochemical aspect of life, especially in the study of genome/proteome interactions. I am a first-year graduate student at The Ohio State University. Acting advocate for the LGBTQ+ and minority communities. Hobbies include sudokus, sarcasm, and binge-watching Netflix. I cannot wait to give back the help Cientifico Latino offered when I applied to graduate school.
