As a member of the first generation in my family to go to college, I realized that this will be my gateway to explore what I wanted in my life. While attending CUNY, nothing intrigued me more than the chemical aspects of human anatomy. For example, I was completely baffled by the idea how the Le-Chatelier's principle can be used to regulate the pH in our body, or how conjugation in cholesterol structure helps provide fluidity in cell membrane. Inspired by this very ability of science to explain the physiological phenomenon, I decided to major in Chemistry. During my time at Hunter, I starting tutoring incoming freshmen and sophomores during my undergraduate years. As I begun my journey as a tutor, I realized that I was extremely enthusiastic about science, and education in general. I learned that with the right tools and resources, any student can achieve their goals. I am qualified to teach biochemistry, chemistry, and Biology. I can adapt to each student's needs and cater instruction and coaching through creative ways that can achieve positive outcomes.
During the summer of last year in college, I began research on the genomic evolution of Syphils disease at Weill Cornell Medical College. The research focused primarily on the comparative analysis of various genes of the Syphlis disease pathogen-Treponema Pallidum. My job as a paid-intern involved extracting various orthologs from Trep genome, and to analyze the diversification in Treponema bacteria with the help of molecular phylogenetics. Currently I am an Adjunct at CUNY Hunter, where I teach general chemistry lab course. I am also familiar with various computer languages, such as bash, PERL, SQL, and bioperl.
