About me

Profile picture Luz K. MolinaA little more about me. I was born in Bogota, but raised in Cartagena de Indias. I always enjoyed living by the Caribbean Sea. This eventually turned into my desire to study Biology and focus in Limnology. I as very interested in how environmental factors affect life in the water. I definately enjoyed taking samples on the field, and analyzing water samples in the lab. I was fortunate to do sampling in the Amazon River and the Orinoco River. This experience opened the doors for me to be continue my studies and pursue a Masters degree.

I was awarded an assistantship to study Marine Science at the University of Southern Mississippi. It was an amazing experience where I had the chance to sample the Gulf of Mexico on research cruises. My enthusiasm for research did not stop there. I realized that besides field work and lab work, I enjoyed analyzing data. I also found that crating graphs was an excelent way of understanding the measurements, but to show them to the public.

I decided that that was the next step in my career. I applied for a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University to work in Fisheries Visualizations. Currently I am writing the results of my research. I am also creating visaalizations of my interest and freelancing on visualization.
