Verónica Segarra, PhD., is Associate Professor, Faculty in Residence, and Endowed Chair in Biological Sciences and Chemistry at Goucher College, a small liberal arts college in Baltimore, Maryland, where she teaches undergraduates to be life scientists in the classroom and in the research lab. Verónica obtained a doctorate in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale and obtained her undergraduate degrees from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL.
Verónica was born in Puerto Rico, where she was raised by amazing women. She tries to take her inspiration from them in her roles as a teacher, mentor, and scientist. Her favorite part of her job is to see her students carve out careers that are tailored to their passions, talents, and values. In her free time, she pursues her artistic interests and engages in science outreach.
Professional Previews will take place on Zoom. We recommend this program for middle school and up, but all ages are welcome.
