I am a Parasitologist working in the Department of Clinical Laboratory at the University Hospital (Hospital Escuela) in Tegucigalpa, the main public health hospital in Honduras. I am also a faculty member of the Research Unit (Unidad de Investigación Científica), Faculty of Medical Sciences (Facultad de Ciencias Médicas), Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras (UNAH). I am board member of the Instituto de Enfermedades Infecciosas y Parasitologia Antonio Vidal (IAV), a non-profit organization devoted to training, advising, and conducting research in the field of infectious diseases and parasitology. I combine clinical laboratory work, teaching, and research activities with mentoring graduate and post-graduate students and faculty members performing health research, thereby building interdisciplinary bridges, promoting international collaboration, and networking to advance scientific research and social innovation for health in Honduras.
