My name is Andrea Marcano-Delgado. I am from San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, a very small but beautiful town located on the east coast of the island. Currently, I am a rising senior majoring in Chemistry at the University of Puerto Rico-Humacao. My main goal is to obtain a PhD in Chemistry. My long-term goal is having my own research lab composed of students from diverse backgrounds with the mission of developing novel materials for biomedical and energy applications. During my free time, I enjoy visiting the beaches of Puerto Rico, traveling, singing opera and watching movies.
