Research Interests

During the summer of 2011 Cesar conducted research in the Department of Civil Engineering's Strand Lab. Cesar's research goal was to create transgenetic forms of Epipremnum aureum, also known as the plant golden pothos. This new form would express a gene that would allow the plant to degrade certain pollutants commonly found in homes. If the study is successful, this could be a very beneficial finding.

Cesar has continued his research with Dr. Strand since the summer of 2012 as part of the UW GenOM Project Undergraduate Research Program. During the summer of 2013, he participated in the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP) at the University of Texas School of Dentistry and Medical School in Houston.
