I love gaining and sharing knowledge as a mean of making our society better. I enjoy giving back to our next generation by helping them to overcome the challenges they face. I have experience in university and laboratory teaching as well as secondary school sciences and maths tutoring. I enjoy finding new ways to explain things to help others understand concepts from various angles.

I am a PhD candidate in Microbiology and Immunology. I specialise in vaccine development and biological control of vector-borne diseases. I am fascinated by infectious agents that make people sick and find ways to fight them. I am a native Spanish speaker and also fluent in Russian.
