I was born and raised on the island of Puerto Rico where I am majoring in Chemical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez. My research interests are broad, but mostly lie in the fascinating Biomedical Engineering field. Some of the areas that I have been able to explore through my undergraduate studies include cardiac tissue engineering and drug delivery systems for the treatment of cancer. When I find some free time I enjoy dancing salsa, playing tennis, spending a day reading at the beach, going scuba diving and taking underwater pictures.
