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, cooking, concerts, movies, time with family and friends!
What is your favorite science adventure?
My first encounter with a human body was in my anatomy class in high school. Ever since then, I have been obsessed with designing therapies that help heal the body in creative ways.
