I am a Honduran transplant living in Durham, North Carolina. I have lived in the United States since 2008. I completed my masters studies at THE Ohio State University, after this I moved to Happy Valley to work on my PhD at the Pennsylvania State University. In 2017, I moved to College Station where I spent 3 years working on my first postdoc in the Sword Lab, before moving to beautiful Virginia to work with Susan Whitehead. Currenly, I am a scientist at Pairwise in the Research Triangle Park.

Meet also my Beasties - Nova (big dog), Sienna (little dog), Marley (big iguana) and Marvin (little goat).

Nova and Marvin had to stay back in Virginia since they needed more space than what I could afford in NC. However, they are together in a farm and I still receive updates from their new mother.

My beloved Marley passed away in Oct 2022, at almost 15 years old.

Even though all 4 beasties are no longer together, they will always be a part of my growth and experience, so expect to see them in photos or articles.
