Agobe's Painting

What degrees do you hold and from what institutions?

I have a Microbiology B.S. with a minor in Biochemistry from Texas State University.

What excites you about joining Texas A&M College of Medicine for your PhD studies?

I am ecstatic to learn about all the Aggie traditions and I am excited to join such a high caliber program.

If you could meet any scientist throughout history, who would you want to meet and why?

Milena Marić, Albert Einstein's wife. She was smarter than Einstein, and was in all the same classes with him and performed above him, but never graduated because women were not accepted in the scientific field. The professor who proctored the oral exam necessary to graduate did not like her because she was a woman and failed her.

Tell us something you are passionate about apart from research.

I love to paint because I find creating very rewarding and relaxing. In addition to a picture of myself, I have included a picture of me with one of my paintings.
