Laboratory Technician, CAChE Nutrient Analysis Lab at FIU


RFA: Fate & Transport

Joined our Summer 2017 Research Fellowship

I am a native of Puerto Rico and currently participating in the National Student Exchange program at FIU. My research project is aimed at understanding how mangroves filter nutrients and contaminants from freshwater bodies to marine coasts. I am studying this in both South Florida and Puerto Rico. My long term plan is to enroll in FIU's graduate school to pursue a PhD in Biology. I am excited to be part of CREST CAChE's Undergraduate Research Fellows Program because of the chance to represent my community in science, and because of the opportunities it may present for future careers.
