Undergraduate students

Daniela Calvachi Prieto
Daniela Calvachi Prieto is from Bogota, Colombia, and she is currently pursuing a BS in Mechanical Engineer at FIU. She is also a flight instructor, and she has been teaching for more than three years; her interest in planes has opened her curiosity since she was a kid, and she wanted to complement her aviation education with engineering. The idea of working in the study of High Pressure and High/Low-temperature Chemistry is fascinating because it fits precisely where her goals are aiming, towards the creation and design of new materials for the aeronautic and aerospace industry.
Angela Bracho
Angela Bracho is from Maracaibo, Venezuela. She is a senior, and her major is Biochemistry. I came to The United States at 17 years old, and she has been working hard to achieve a better future for herself and for her family. Since she was a child, she was really fascinated by the field of science, and she really enjoys studying and learning different aspects in this area. For her, science is the future. 

High-school interns 2022

Hannah Truong
Hannah Truong is an upcoming senior at John A. Ferguson Senior High School and is planning to graduate with the class of 2023. With a strong love for chemistry and biology, Hannah aspires to uncover the mysteries of the world one discovery at a time. She believes that under Dr. Chuvashova's guidance in researching the creation of new functional materials due to extreme conditions will extend her knowledge, enabling her to learn and grow both personally and academically. Alongside the honour of working with the team, she is ready to tackle any obstacle and implement her experience to help others.
Daniel Garcia
Daniel Garcia attends TERRA Environmental Research Institute Class of 2023. He has always had an interest in the sciences and the world around us. Chemistry really caught his eye when he got a book of the periodic table of elements as a child and it has been his passion ever since.
Daisy Hernandez
Daisy Hernandez is a senior at TERRA Environmental Research Institute Class of 2023. She has always been interested in the field of chemistry since she was in middle-school. Through Dr. Chuvashova's lab she is able to come to a greater understanding of the field that she aspires to continue working in. She is excited to work with like-minded people that will help her guide through the process.
