Monica is the science communication specialist of the Center for Health & Science Communication at Becker Library, bringing forth decades of academic research experience to serve our community of students, trainees, faculty, and staff. Before shifting gears to her current position, Monica enjoyed many years as an experimentalist in biophysics, structure/function and pharmacology of membrane transporters and ion channels. She earned a Ph.D. in Physiology from the University of Barcelona, and following postdoctoral training in UCLA, she joined the research-track faculty at the School of Medicine, first in Cell Biology & Physiology, and later in Anesthesiology.

Monica believes the transfer of knowledge is the biggest responsibility we have as scientists, and she has always found all aspects of our profession having to do with communication enormously gratifying. Monica has a passion for writing, reviewing and editing, and she looks forward to helping you achieve excellence in science communication!
