I was born and raised in a beautiful Caribbean island, Puerto Rico. I am currently majoring in Chemical Engineering in the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez with plans of graduating in Spring 2014. I am very interested in exploring the use of materials science and engineering to solve clinical needs. I am particularly interested in the development of medical devices for detection, health monitoring and high-throughput biomolecules/drug screening. Also, I am a media enthusiast. I enjoy working on video and music production, taking photographs and writing.
