Flo is an undergraduate student majoring molecular biology and biotechnology int the STEM program at Kean University, and a visiting student at MIT. I’ve done projects with drug discovery for potential CCr1 antagonists, gene expression and egg morphologies within Drosophila species, and now interested in single cell RNA sequencing and analysis. I was born in Uruguay but moved and grew up in New Jersey. I crossed paths with the Shalek Lab when I became a part of MIT’s Chemical Bonds Fellowship. Outside the lab, I enjoy hiking, cooking and trying new foods, painting, yoga and music. I’m also a big adrenaline junkie and always looking for an adventure.
