California State University San MarcosSycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation Scholar
Although Jeff Jaureguy has struggled with
anxiety, depression and ADHD throughout
his life, he refuses to let these learning
differences impact his scholarly pursuits.
Jeff has completed more than three years
of original scientific research and presented
it at 10 nationally recognized conferences
He was recently accepted into a summer
research program at the University of California,
San Diego, to study machine learning with
applications in bioinformatics. Jeff has also
helped raise funds for children in Nepal and
contributed to many local community events.
When he’s not helping his community, Jeff can
be seen in his lab coat completing research
at California State University San Marcos as
he seeks to understand the effect of climate
change on local ecosystems and gain a deeper
understanding of population genetics. As a
Basque Hispanic man, Jeff wants to work
toward increasing diversity in the sciences.
Jeff plans to pursue a doctorate in
bioinformatics with an emphasis in machine
learning to solve issues related to bio-medicine.
