My name is Luiz Galdino and a junior student
at UCLA. I was born and raised in Brazil, and I came to the United
States in 2001. I transferred from College of the Canyons located in
Santa Clarita, my hometown, about 33 miles from UCLA. I have been
married to Juliana Lima since 2004 and I work at Gruber Systems,
Inc., a manufacturer of artificial granites, in the Quality Control
lab. I joined Dr. Grüner’s Nano-Biophysics group in Spring 2005. I
enjoy reading, and sports (soccer, basketball, swimming).
In essence, I am interested in the physics and
design of nanodevices that will be applied in the biomedical field
such as drug delivery and detection of diseased cells.
