Brief biography

I recently earned my Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the Clinical and Translational Science Program at the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. My dissertation focused on the development of adenovirus vaccines against emerging pathogens like Ebola and antibiotic-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.

Please note that I am not an active researcher and I am not taking students for research projects. If you have any questions about graduate school, especially if you belong to a minority group, feel free to contact me. (Hablo español!)

Current courses at UWL

I manage laboratory sections for BIO 306, 468, 315, 436 and 408.
