Major: Biochemistry (BSA); Entrepreneurship Minor

Graduation Date: Spring 2021


This is my second year working with TIDES. As a member of the TIDES team, I am responsible for working closely with events and helping plan them. I participated in the Bioactive Molecules FRI stream my freshman year, and became a mentor my sophmore year. FRI helped me realize just how much I enjoy research. As for other organizations, I am also a proud sister of Pi Lambda Chi Latina Sorority, Inc., being a part of the first line to cross in Texas and am currently chapter President! I plan to attend graduate school and continue doing research with neurodegenerative diseases.

I started working at TIDES in fall of 2020 and am absolutely in love with my job. I strongly believe in the power of science communication, and connecting students to experiential learning opportunities in the sciences through my work has been incredibly fulfilling so far! I’m grateful for all the mentorship the TIDES team has provided in helping me become an agent of change with the CNS community. After I graduate, I’m planning on getting my PhD in Bioengineering to eventually work on cell plant-based meat alternatives in the foodtech industry.
