Research Interests Biology


Fun Fact: I have two missing teeth!

Hi, I'm Ailyn Mendoza. I'm from a square-mile town in the smallest state: Central Falls, Rhode Island. I'm also Colombian and bilingual. I plan to concentrate in Biology (ScB), with a *current* interest in microbiology. I'm interested in comprehending biological processes that lead to infection and disease and how they impact the human body. I'm eager to make scientific discoveries. I also have a keen interest in bacteria! I love ice cream, music, doodling, writing, socks, and random philosophical conversations, and I always have something in my pockets (and on my mind). :-)
