I am trans and I am a biology grad student.//


I’m interested in diatom taxonomy and use as bioindicators. I fell in love with their amazingly beautiful and different shapes since I observed them at microscope. By now I recently joined to the Limnology dept at UNMSM’s Natural History Museum, and do some talks about algae and microbiology basics to non scientists. I’m studying to be a diatomist and a biological Sciences divulgator, and sometimes make algae-based art too
