I am queer and I am a microbial ecology PhD student.//

Multi-racial Latinx queer here! It’s important to share all my intersections while doing research. From a lower-income family and first generation to attend college– I’m already outside “normal” for my family. I do research on microbial ecology, specifically within caves and Antarctic lakes. Hope to bridge the gaps between the qtPOC community and science– we’re out here doing important work and we don’t have to leave our identities at the door.
