Juan Garcia

April 1, 2019 -- pmg2vy

Juan was born in Puerto Rico and lived there for 7 years before moving to Stafford, Virginia where currently resides. As a first year undergraduate, he plans to complete a 3+1 program to obtain a B.S. and M.A. in chemistry with a specialization in biochemistry. His guided research includes the synthesis of metal nanomaterials for efficient catalysis of oxygen reduction reactions. During his leisure time Juan enjoys spending time with friends, watching dramas, and listening to diverse forms of music.
