Education:I was born in Bogota, Colombia. Got my Bachelor degree in Chemistry at the Universidad Nacional de
Colombia. Thanks to a scholarship from the Colombian Government, I came to the United States to get my Master degree in Biochemistry at the University of New Hampshire. Since then I have been working in basic research. At the University of Chicago-Hospitals I was involved with a group studying brain cancer. Moved to Wisconsin and was part of a research team at the University of Wisconsin interested in early stages of in-vitro fertilization. When the lab was closed, I started working with coronary endothelial cells and shear stress and from then, transitioned to reproductive biology, and recently I am a member of a wonderful group doing research in reproductive immunology.
I love to dance to the beat of Latin music. Practice yoga whenever I am able to and do some gardening.
My motto: “Live in the present moment, yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not here yet”
