Jesús is a senior originally from Michoacan, Mexico studying microbiology and neuroscience. He conducts research in the Winkler lab studying cell division in the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae to combat antibiotic resistance. When he isn't in the lab, he can be found playing soccer, watching movies, or tinkering with a new piece of technology. He hopes to complete an M.D./Ph.D. after graduation and pursue a career in translational infectious disease research.
