I am a Assistant Professor in the College of Biomedical Sciences at Larkin University, and have extensive research experience as immunologist, microbiologist, aerobiologist, and computational biologist. I am also the principal investigator of the Respiratory and Immunology Project Laboratory Research Team at Larkin University (RIPLRT). At Larkin University, in addition to carrying out scientific research, I teach biochemistry, immunology, and molecular genetics. Among my academic credentials include a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Chemistry (Southeastern Louisiana University under an athletic scholarship), Ph.D. in Microbiology and Medical Zoology (School of Medicine of the University of Puerto Rico - Medical Sciences Campus), post-doctoral fellowship in Environmental Health Sciences (the Bloomberg School of Public Health of the Johns Hopkins University), and Science Teaching Fellowship (American Society for Microbiology).
I am strong supporter of reproducible data analysis and thus gained specializations in Data Science, Genomic Data Sciences, Executive Data Science, Software Development (Johns Hopkins University), Systems Biology (Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai), and Bioinformatics (University of California at San Diego). Through these specializations, I developed extensive experience as a programmer in the R, Python, and Matlab computer languages.
