About the Blog
I felt the necessity of describing why this blog was created. This blog was created in 2010 as an initiative of the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement Program (RISE). The objective was initially to create a personal portfolio in the blog. However, I wanted to change that. From now on (April 12, 2013) I will describe all my experiences as an undergraduate student as well as the research that I am performing at the University of Puerto Rico at Cayey and will perform at the University of Virginia. Feel free to comment and ask question if you have any.
