Hello, my name is Sebastian (Sebo) Diaz. I am a rising junior at the University of Arizona majoring in Biomedical Engineering and a member of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe. My research interests include biomedical imaging and optics. I have been a member Dr. Jennifer K. Barton’s Tissue Optics Laboratory for the last year and have participated in various imaging projects under Dr. Arthur F. Gmitro. In the future, I intend to pursue an MD/PhD dual-degree program and serve as a mentor for underrepresented minorities in STEM as a physician-scientist.
