Mexico Project, Final Presentation


I spent January 2011 in Cuernavaca, Mexico and worked on a project to model the Notch and JAK/STAT signaling pathways. This is part of one presentation, which I gave in Spanish.

This is my final presentation after my stay in Cuernavaca, Mexico during January 2010 (MIT's IAP period, when you are given a month to do whatever you want) where I was working with Dr. Fernando Ramos. It mostly focuses on applications and explaining basics to the biologists who were interested in developing computational models for their research on cervical cancer.

humanity's gold
20 november 2009 | short story

Captain’s Log 1.25.2838 My eyes watered at the sight. We had finally discovered what we had spent all these years wandering [...]aimlessly for. Shifting and moving, the silvery substance coated the land, its beauty enticing and dicing. There were several who ventured over its smooth surface, dying one by one. Out in the distance could be seen the splendorous pinnacle, atop its peak a mountain of gold. Men still strove for that most holy of materials, still killed and maimed for a chance to hold and possess it; some said that gold had become more than a sign of wealth and power.

Another story that ended up inspiring my book-in-progress Filugori, it is a focus on humanity's lust for something, anything, that will bring him fame and glory. It uses a character more obsessed with the adventure as a counter-backdrop to the drama unfolding around him.
