I am a junior Biomedical Engineering major at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) from Alamo, Texas. My research interests are in biomaterials for drug delivery and nanotechnology. My career goal is to obtain a PhD in Biomedical Engineering and continue as a professor or research scientist in my field. Outside of school, I like to watch films, make mosaic art and perform with my A cappella group on my campus.
