Hi! My name is Bruno A. Rodriguez and I’m from a little but interesting island in the Caribbean called Puerto Rico. In June 2015, I graduated from The University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (Colegio) with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Biotechnology with a curricular sequence in Italian. I decided to pursue my Master’s Degree in Forensic Science (Biology track) at Penn State, because it is a unique program that trains you not only in the actual forensic techniques, but also in the research applications this field has. My future plans envisions a Ph.D. degree in the Biochemistry/Microbiology field, in order to be a college professor and perform research in the Applied Microbial Forensics field. In my free time, I like to take dance classes at Penn State, participate in the Multicultural Engineering Graduate Association (MEGA) activities and enjoy my life as a professional salsa dancer.
