I am a scientist passionate about technology and innovation. I have a strong background in biochemistry (I have recently finished a Ph.D. in Chemistry). While I was working on my Ph.D., I developed a growing interest in programming. I started with some basic Python courses to analyze and visualize the data I obtained from my experiments. After finishing my Ph.D., I realized I could use my background in basic science to follow a career as a data scientist analyzing data for biotech and pharma projects.
I am passionate about chemistry and biochemistry. I have been researching in the area of biotechnology and biocatalysis for the last 6 years. Biocatalysis is a poerful tool to develop greener catalysts (called biocatalysts) for the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. Biocatalysts are biological systems used to perform chemical transformations, being the most used, the enzymes. I have used different enzymes through my research: epoxide hydrolases, oxide reductases, lipases. Read more about my research here.
The social projects are my second passion. As a Latina scientists, I want to give a contribuition in the improving of the access to high education in our region, particularly supporting young people, who want to have a career in STEM. For that reason, I have founded Becas.LA, a social entrepreneurship project, which consists of an online platform for divulgating in real time fellowships and grants opportunities for Latin American students who are looking to study abroad.
