A well-known mathematics postulate states that: “Through any two points, there is exactly one straight line." Our reality, of course, is much more complicated than that. The life journey of a person is more like the curvy roads of PR-1, or “La Piquiña.”

A perfect example of this is scientist James Ayala González, who started his professional life as a jazz musician and today is a behavioral researcher at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, Sichuan Province, Peoples Republic of China.

From an early age I have been interested in understanding the interactions between the fauna, the ecosystem and humans. These interests played a key role in my decision of pursuing my undergraduate studies in biology at the Metropolitan University (UMET) of the Ana G. Méndez System. During my sophomore year I took a botany course with Professor Eva Dávila. That experience helped define my next steps. Professor Dávila became a mentor and I worked in her laboratory in several projects related to zoology and botany.
