Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I am keen to develop an academic career in biomedical sciences. In my early stages at the Ph.D. student career, I have been able to combine my studies with working and other commitments. While accomplishing this, I have shown myself to be self-motivated, committed and determined in achieving my goals. I have also demonstrated leading and organizing skills, a firm sense of responsibility and my capacity to work hard under pressure. I possess excellent verbal and written communication skills in both, Spanish and English, and I can relate to a wide range of people, as proven by my work experiences as science workshop assistant, laboratory instructor, professor, and quality control analyst in a biopharmaceutical industry. I am enthusiastic to develop a PhD thesis on the etiology of HPV infections and I long to complete a PhD. degree that will allow me to apply to a Post-Doctoral position in which I can hone the skills I already have and learn new techniques that will allow me to be a more competitive scientist. This will make me a more qualified candidate for an academic position. I aim to develop an Academic career, as working as a professor I can use my science related knowledge and people skills to encourage and help young scientists to pursue careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related fields.
I focus on microbiome data production and analyses. This to establish SOPs for metabolomics and proteomics for the study of correlations between microbiota, Human Papilloma Virus, inflammation and cervicovaginal lesions. Currently I am collaborrating with the use of Next-Generation sequencing and other Omic approaches to study environmental and gut microbiomes from watersheds, sea urchins and the ruminant gastrointestinal tract. Bioinformatic analysis is performed using computational tools such as QUIIME, Qiita, R, MetaboAnalyst, Mimosa and several databases. all of this projects are being conducted under the supervision of Dr. Filipa Godoy.
