A little about myself. . .

I am originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico and am the oldest of two siblings. I attended the University of Rochester for medical school. I also completed a bachelor’s degree in Molecular Biology at Yale University in 2005 and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Michigan in 2012. I plan to pursue a career in academia as a child neurologist, with an emphasis in neonatal and fetal neurology. In my spare time, I love to hike, travel, dance (salsa, tango, merengue!), and also root for the Michigan Wolverines (Go Blue!).
