Chemist, Teva Pharmaceuticals
Joined our Summer 2017 Research Fellowship
I graduated with a bachelor's in Chemistry and a minor in Biology at FIU. I have served as an assistant researcher to Dr. Sonia Underwood for education research in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. As part of the 2018 summer's CREST CAChE Undergraduate Research Fellows Program, I worked with Dr. Francisco Fernandez-Lima to identify insecticides and detect where they accumulate inside mosquitoes. This project was an opportunity to gain relevant experience in the detection of analytes within a cell, which aligns well with my interests in pharmaceuticals and drug detection within samples.
