"Feed the Good Wolf and Personify your Trauma"
A self-proclaimed “explorer of the microcosmos”, Morgan Riba graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M in 2017 with a degree in Molecular and Cell Biology. She hopes to begin her path towards a double doctorate as part of an MD/PhD program. She is an International Baccalaureate diploma recipient, Texas A&M University Honors Fellow, and Undergraduate Research Scholar. While at Texas A&M, she earned a first-place poster award and publication for her research on the mechanisms of Salmonella infection. Outside of academics, Morgan is an advocate for mindfulness techniques and enjoys pilates, learning new languages, and music. While at Texas A&M, she completed a 3-year engagement with the Wind Symphony. She is an accomplished percussionist and pianist, receiving the TSSEC Outstanding Soloist Award for Marimba in 2013 and the President’s Cup for Piano Performance from NFMC in 2014. She believes that through personification of our traumatic experiences, we may learn to tame the beasts within us. Morgan is based in Austin.
