I am bi and I am a biochemist. //

I’m an undocumented queer graduate student in biochemistry at Cal State LA. I study the effect of post-translational modifications on cellular pathways. When I’m not doing science, I’m probably tweeting away on my phone (@undocusci). As an undergrad I was involved in social justice student activism. This allowed me observe the many imperfections in science as an institution. I am constantly critically analyzing science from a social justice lens and pushing for the STEM field to be more inclusive and accesible. Follow @freeradicalsblog to learn more!
