I am currently pursuing my PhD in Biochemistry at The Graduate Center at the City University of New York and I conduct biological pharmaceutical research on a rare genetic disorder at City College, City University of New York. Concurrent with my research and studies, I am also an Adjunct at City College, where I teach two lab courses, a Biochemistry course in the fall and a Biophysical Chemistry course in the spring.
Prior to pursuing my PhD, I graduated from Northeastern University where my group won honorable mention in the National Student Design Competition from the American Institute of Chemical Engineering (AIChE) in my senior year. I was also a member of Engineers Without Borders (EWB), and won a grant from AIChE, to fund the design and building of water systems in Honduras and Uganda.
After earning a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering with minors in Biochemical Engineering and Psychology from Northeastern University, I worked full time in the biological pharmaceutical industry producing therapeutics for Clinical Trials.
I have always had a passion for tutoring and mentoring students in subjects like Chemistry, Biochemistry, Organic Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Design. I feel receiving good grades is important however, I am a avid believer in truly comprehending the material so that one’s grades are a true reflection of understanding. This allows the knowledge garnered from education to be applied to better oneself and the world.
In my free time, I enjoy dancing Argentine tango, attending seminars at the Museum of Natural History, cooking and trying new cuisines from around the world.
