Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
I am majoring in Microbiology and minoring in Biology and Environmental Science at the Inter American University of Puerto Rico in Aguadilla. I work as an undergraduate student researcher studying the presence of genes encoding aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes, such as aph(2’’)-Ib and aph(2’’)-Id in E. faecalis from marine water environments. During the summer, I worked as a field research technician at Montclair State University's New Jersey School of Conservation, where I assisted in handling, marking, tagging, measuring and weighting eastern painted (Chrysemys picta), snapping (Chelydra serpentina) and musk turtles (Sternotherus odoratus), and northern water snakes (Nerodia sipedon) from Lake Wapalanne. I also assisted in radio tracking wood turtles (Glyptemys insculpta) in Stokes State Forest.
