Assistant Professor, P. I.

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana to Honduran-immigrant parents. I received my B.S. in Cell and Molecular biology. I attended graduate school at University of California, San Francisco, where I studies the group of genetically inherited neurodegenerative diseases known as polyglutamine diseases. For my postdoctoral studies, I incorporated how aging contributes to age-related diseases using C. elegans as a model.



Undergraduate Research Assistant

I'm an undergraduate Biochemistry major at the University of Maine expecting to graduate in May 2024. I've always been interested in learning about the biological processes that keep all living things going, as well as the effects that stress, toxins, and diet have on those processes. I would like to focus on how these effects contribute to metabolic and neurodegenerative disorders, and in the future plan to develop new treatments or preventative measures for those suffering from these diseases.



Undergraduate Research Assistant

I'm a biochemistry major and I'm interested in pharmacological effects on life spans. I'm expected to graduate in 2025 May. A fun fact about me is I love to try and brew different kinds of coffee using different techniques and test how this affects their tastes.

Undergraduate Capstone Student

I am an undergraduate Biochemistry major and Management minor at the University of Maine expecting to graduate in May of 2023. I am interested in life's biochemical processes that allow species to continue on. I am very math oriented and love to challenge myself in biochemical aspects. In my spare time you can find me with my nose in a book or in the summer on a jetski and in the winter on a snowmobile.

Undergraduate Honors Student

I am a senior undergraduate student majoring in Biology with Honors and minors in Mathematics and Neuroscience. I am fascinated by aging and how little we know about it despite it being the one disease that affects us all. I am eager to contribute to the study of its causes and reversal, so that we may prevent its consequences. In the Angeli Lab, I am using C. elegans to study the effect of novel small molecule combinations on age-reversal in vivo and identify lifespan-extending cocktails. After graduating in 2023, I plan to pursue a Ph.D. and continue my research efforts in the field of aging.
