I am an undergraduate student at FIU pursuing a B.S in Biochemistry. Currently I am volunteering as a research assistant, and working at FIU as a math LA. Once I graduate FIU, I hope to get accepted into pharmacy school.
My projects involve investigating the affects of olfactory and visual stimulus on mosquito behavior, as well as investigating genetic tools to create mutant mosquitoes. Currently, I am investigating how plant volatiles like honey influence mosquito choice, and will later investigate how the mosquito attraction to olfactory and visual stimulus change depending on their physiological state. For the genetic tools project, I am investigating the Gal4-UAS system commonly used in Drosophila.
