I am a second year Biology PhD student at Clark University in Worcester, MA. I finished my undergraduate study at the University of Connecticut in 2003, where I majored in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. During my undergraduate, I also pursued and completed a summer study program in Panama where I studied and worked with rainforest conservation. After graduating from UCONN, I submerged myself in academia, working within the fields of veterinary medicine and genetics at Yale University until 2010. While I was working at Yale, I also completed my Masters degree in general Biology from Southern Connecticut State University. I studied part-time and worked full-time, thus I was able to sustain myself and cover my tuition. After completing my Masters degree, I decided to move forward and pursue my PhD degree in Biology. As a PhD student, I have the fortune to teach undergraduate students, most of them coming right out of high school. I truly enjoy teaching my students the wonderful field of biology and seeing them learn and better comprehend nature, to me, is most gratifying. I am looking forward to the opportunity to teach younger students how fun and exciting science can truly be. Being able to share my knowledge in science with the younger generation would be truly a great opportunity for me. Besides being a biologist, I also try to carry an eventful life. I enjoy sports, specially soccer and martial arts. I am also a certified SCUBA Divemaster and I am always looking for opportunities to explore nature and appreciate its wonder. Let's enjoy and learn science together!
