About Paula

Hello students! I am a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who specializes in protein biochemistry. I have been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center since 2004. I used to have/run my own laboratory, focusing on changes in protein phosphorylation and its potential role in brain disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction and Alzheimer's disease. A few years ago, I became a mother and I chose to close my laboratory and not work full time as a scientist any more. Instead, I now enjoy lecturing psychiatrists at UT Southwestern, and helping students like yourself with their science courses. I am passionate about science and teaching, and I promise I will make the lessons RELEVANT and RELATABLE.
I am also fluent in 5 languages, including Spanish and French, and could tutor you in these languages if you'd prefer.
Let the FUN begin!
