EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL TRAINING
B.S., Nutrition, Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez.
I grew up in Ciudad Juárez (Chihuahua, México), where I studied and received my degree of Nutrition from the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez in 2018. Growing up in a border city, I saw two cultures coexist, which made me aware that we share important health issues related to nutrition. This inspired me to pursue further education, with a future goal of minimizing preventable health problems in both our countries.
Why did you choose the Nutritional Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Arizona?
I had the opportunity to previously visit the University of Arizona for a research program (“A Summer Research Experience”), where I met faculty and students who introduced me to the graduate program. I was drawn to the many research areas that align with my interest, in addition to the opportunity to complete rotations in different laboratories before beginning my master's project.
