Clinical research, specifically pediatric cardiology, rare genetics, addiction, and social determinants of health. Also Spanish literature


Hello! I love research! Specifically pediatric and women's health clinical research. I have a background in gynecology oncology bench research and pediatric cardiology. For the past four years, I've been leading heart failure and heart transplant research in Colorado. Currently, I am pursuing a master's in global epidemiology with a focus on maternal and child health. In my free time, I go on hikes, make up new recipes in the kitchen, and volunteer at the botanical gardens.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Can You Grow a Human Heart?

Regenerative medicine is an exciting field of research, especially with emerging stem cell therapies. You could do an in-depth literature review on emerging stem cell trials and present your findings in a podcast format, research paper, or video.

Public Health Communication

Pick your favorite public health topic! After doing an in-depth look now comes the communication part. An important part of public health is putting your findings into easy-to-understand materials. Create pamphlets, a video, or a short paper that clearly communicates important information in an easy-to-understand manner to the public.

How Genes Work

Pick a genetic condition, such as Danon disease, and learn about the symptomology, treatment options etc. Present your findings in a research paper.
