"Nobody is born intelligent: intelligence feeds from effort and desire to learn."

--Félix E. Rivera-Mariani, PhD

I am scientists and educator, with PhD in Microbiology, and postdoctoral fellowships in Environmental Health Sciences and Science Education. Additional scientific training includes specializations in Data Science, Genomic Data Science, and Systems Biology and Biotechnology, and Bioinformatics. Among my scientific interests include how particles of biological origins in the air we breath (Aerobiology) modulate our immune system (Immunotoxicology) and affect the human respiratory system. I am also engaged in data science workflows, through computer programming languages, such as RPython, and Matlab, in biological sciences scientific research as well as evidence-based in higher education as a professor. I also have interest in enhancing the scientific literacy of citizens through citizen science projects: public participation in scientific research.
