NATALIA RIVERA, B.S.
Hi! I feel very grateful to be working as a full-time research assistant in the Duff lab. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from The University of Texas at Dallas with a B.S. in Neuroscience and a concentration in Pre-Medical studies. I am very interested in pediatric neurology, specifically in cases concerning epilepsy. My goal is to obtain a Doctorate of Medicine and specialize in neurodevelopmental disability treatment.
I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and lived there until moving to Dallas, Texas at 10 years old. My hobbies include reading, taking care of my plants, cooking, and going to local farmer’s markets. I am so excited to explore Nashville and make this city my home!
