I am originally from McAllen, Texas. I received a B.S. in Biology in from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley in 2018, in the neighboring city of Edinburg, Texas. I'm honored to be in my current position in the Gudas Lab and I'm excited to learn more about the research done in the lab and how I can contribute and grow in this position. Outside the lab I enjoy listening to and playing music, as well as visiting jazz clubs and concerts.
