Why are you a part of CU Café?
When I started my postdoc, I wanted to find a community of like-minded scholars that are committed to promoting diversity in the sciences. The best science is done when diverse minds think together, therefore I believe we must break down current barriers that prevent diverse minds from accessing a career in science.

Research and/or career interest:
Biomaterials, tissue engineering, cancer metastasis, heart valve disease

Long-term professional goal:
Become a university professor

What do you like to do for fun?
Hiking, traveling, salsa dancing, cooking, concerts, movies, time with family and friends!

What is your favorite science adventure?
I enjoy listening to various podcasts (RadioLab, Science Vs, Freakonomics, etc)
