Professor Raul Navarro, Ph.D., Occidental College, will give a guest lecture on Zoom, titled, “Adventures in Academia: An Underrepresented Perspective”.
I’ll be discussing my doctoral research in the field of organic chemistry, which culminated in the development of new chemical tools to access a family of natural products known as the propellane alkaloids. I’ll also be discussing the shift into my postdoctoral studies, where I explored the development of new chemical biology tools to study protein function. My growth as a scientist is intricately associated with my Latino and LGBTQ identities, so I will also discuss how these parts of me influenced my personal and professional journey.
