Alexander Vizurraga is a new lab assistant in the Electron Optics Facility, working under Owen Mills.
My name is Alexander Vizurraga. I am currently an undergraduate at Michigan Tech studying biochemistry and molecular biology. My home town is Grand Rapids, and I graduated from Forest Hills Central High School in 2013. I generally enjoy video games, board games, tennis, and playing cello. Throughout high school and college I have been actively involved in many orchestras, and am currently a cellist for the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra (KSO). I am also a part of the American Chemical Society Student Affiliates and will be president in the fall of 2015. I expect to graduate from Michigan Tech in the spring of 2017. After that, I am considering either going to graduate school, or applying for medical school. Additionally, pharmaceuticals and drug design fascinate me, so I might pursue a career in that area.
