Welcome to CienciaPR, an expert and resource network for all who are interested in science and Puerto Rico.
As a scientist, educator and data scientist in-training, I have a broad view on how to approach problems and engage with others.
I can divide my career in three interconnecting branches;
I am interested in the immunological processes involved in inflammation and muscle wasting, and how we can harness phytochemical and steroids derived from plants to (positively) influence these processes. I am interested in utilizing genomic data to relate the effect of phytochemicals with genetic factors.
Data Scientist (in-training):
I am interested in using data to formulate hypotheses, improve decision making, and refine approaches to tackle problems in science, business, and the environment. My curiosity to address questions empirically is complemented by a desire to bridge and embed the gained knowledge to people's everyday lives. My academic approach is also relevant for the business setting as data can be leveraged to personalize customer experiences, customize products to target specific markets, and drive decision making with quantifiable approaches.
I actively engage the public at the intersection of nature and science. I strongly believe that outdoors spaces are excellent environments to teach how scientific questions are inspired by nature and their eventual influence in our natural, cultural, and societal landscapes. This approach has made me a better scientist as I am able to relate knowledge to diverse audiences and understand how people learn and engage with information.
