New Faculty Introductions 2016-17 - Rodney Rosalia

"I was born and raised on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curacao. After finishing high school on my native island, I moved to the Netherlands for my academic studies, my masters program in oncology was done in Amsterdam and my PhD. degree was obtained at the medical faculty of Leiden University.

I will be teaching Earth & Life Sciences, Biology, and Chemistry at NOVA. The most exciting aspect of teaching for me is the prospect of working together with the young and talented students and preparing them for an academic career.

My hobbies are all about a healthy lifestyle, I enjoy cooking and I am a big football fan, supporting FC Barcelona. To stay fit, I do crossfit and lift weights a couple of times a week."
