At the moment, I am a junior majoring in Biochemistry in hopes to further expand in academia and pursue a career in the health field. For the longest time, I’ve grown increasingly fascinated by the complex nature of the scientific and medical field as it continues to unveil great phenomenon, mysteries and more. EHS-TRUE, a program under the UBRP umbrella has been a fundamental step towards my goals, as I’ve had the privilege of partaking in scientific research in a reproductive toxicology lab. Due to this research opportunity, my interests are more within studying toxicology and how it applies to human health.
Coming from New Mexico, my aspiration is to eventually return and contribute back to my native community on and off the Navajo Reservation where I can apply my knowledge to the best of its use. In my free time, I enjoy the simple things such as swimming, and going to local events in the arts (music concerts, movies, etc.)
The University of Arizona’s Undergraduate Biology Research Program is partnering with KXCI 91.3 to produce “Thesis Thursday,” a weekly segment featuring student researchers talking about their undergraduate thesis projects, or research projects while working with University professors. Students describe their research, their overall goals and career interests and where they think their research will lead. As well, they get a chance to share the music and interests that motivate them.Broadcast three times every Thursday with a new student each week.
Thursdays: 9:55 AM, 11:55 AM, and 2:55 PM
