Office Hours - Spring 2017 Monday: 10am-noon Wednesday: 10am-noon
I was born in El Salvador and immigrated to the US when I was 13 years old, went to school in San Francisco, CA and moved to Boston, MA to work at MIT. Now I teach at Gonzaga University in Spokane WA. It is my passion to promote access and cultural diversity in the biological sciences and I use bacteria to teach students the beauty of molecular biology.
