Anna's Bio



Education: 
Ph. D. (Molecular Biology and Genetics), Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona
M. S. (Neurobiology and Molecular Biology), Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona
M. A. (English and American Literature), Arizona State University

I was born and raised in Barcelona (Spain) where I received my MS and PhD from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona; I then was awarded with a postdoctoral fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Education to conduct research in the United States. In 1994, I joined the laboratory of Prof. Robert Holmgren at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) as a Postdoctoral Fellow; my work there was focused on genes that specify neuronal fate in Drosophila (fruitfly). In 1997, I continued research on Drosophila neurogenic genes and transcription factors at The University of Iowa College of Medicine, where I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the laboratory of Prof. Wayne Johnson. I came to Arizona in 1998, and started teaching as an Adjunct Faculty for Chandler-Gilbert Community College. I joined Phoenix College in the Fall of 2001 as a Residential Faculty.
My teaching areas are General Biology for Majors (BIO 181, BIO 182), and Biotechnology for Majors (BIO 247, Applied Biosciences: Biotechnology), a course intended to prepare students for internships in bioscience and biomedical research labs.

I live in the Valley with my daughter Jeannette and two gerbils.  We enjoy spending our free time with friends and family and sharing with them our passion for reading, painting, photography, and discovery.
