Andrea Santiago-Baez

Bachelor's Graduate, Biological Sciences


RFA: Detection & Identification

Joined our Summer 2018 Research Fellowship

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, but when Hurricane Maria struck the island, FIU stepped up and offered their support for me to move to South Florida to continue my Biology degree. Since then, I joined CREST CAChE and for my research project, I've been working closely with my mentors, Alex Mercado and Natalia Quinete, on determining the stress responses and impacts that different concentrations of methylmercury have on mosquito fish.
