A place with plentiful research support
I was born and raised in southeast Texas. After receiving my Ph.D. from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, I made the move to central Texas for my postdoc. I have worked and lived in San Antonio for about a year, and I love everything this great city has to offer.
UTSA was proud to be designated an R1 institution in 2022. To maintain this honor, the university offers postdocs, graduate students and faculty lots of support for their research. The university has a variety of facilities that help me accelerate my biochemical research, including the Center for Innovative Drug Discovery and the pharmacology, mass spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance and microscopy cores.
Outside the lab, San Antonio has something to offer people of all ages. When I was a child, my family would visit the city and I have fond memories of our time on the historic River Walk. I am now a parent of a young child and a resident of this amazing city, so I enjoy taking my son to the Witte Museum, the San Antonio Zoo and the San Antonio Aquarium for him to make fond family memories of his own.
