Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I'm a graduate research fellow at the Ohio State University pursuing a Master in Plant Pathology. Under the guidance of Dr. Soledad Benitez, I am currently working on characterizing the bacterial microbiome of tomato seedlings grown in chicken grazed soils to understand the impact of these soils in endophyte diversity. I obtained a double bachelor's degree focused in Biology and Industrial Microbiology from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez. As a science communication and outreach enthusiast, I am co-founder of Women in Ag Science, a platform dedicated to increasing visibility of women in the agricultural sector. I hope to further collaborate with organizations that promote diversity in STEM fields. (Preferred pronouns: She/her/hers)
