Personal Statement

Hello students! I am a Ph.D. in Neuroscience who specializes in protein biochemistry. I have been a faculty member at UT Southwestern Medical Center since 2004. I used to have/run my own laboratory, focusing on changes in protein phosphorylation and its potential role in brain disorders such as schizophrenia, drug addiction and Alzheimer's disease. A few years ago, I became a mother and I chose to close my laboratory and not work full time as a scientist any more. Instead, I now enjoy lectur...


Paula has taught me concepts of stoichiometry. She has also helped me to figure out how to solve chemistry problems by applying these. Because she speaks Spanish, I could have a class in my native language, which facilitated my understanding. She is a knowledgeable professor and very patient. I really recommend her.

Paula explained gated channels in a very clear and precise way. i finally understand how the membrane channels work. she only took 5 minutes to explain. She makes learning enjoyable.

Dr. U. is a very good teacher. Her teaching style involves establishing a framework first and then slowly building on it to make sure all the material is understandable. I have not come across a topic in Biochem that Dr. U. did not know. Highly recommend her as a biochemistry tutor.

Paula retaught me various concepts about Chemistry in a review activity for class. She was very thorough in her explanations, and ensured that I understood everything before we moved from one area to another. It was very helpful and I feel much more confident about the units we covered.
- Isabel G. from Plano, TX

Paula helped me immensely during my summer chemistry 2 course. She was very easy to reach and very flexible with setting up tutoring hours. Being very proficient in chemistry, Paula was able to help me review and retain a lot of material over a short amount of time.
