Pablo Oyler-Castrillo, GS, QCB

Professional Development Associate 2023-24

Pablo is a graduate student in the Quantitative and Computational Biology program. His research focuses on a class of gene editing technologies called Prime Editors, and how these may be deployed to tackle questions in cell and developmental biology. Pablo is interested in promoting broadly applicable skills 'beyond the bench' that ensure reproducibility in research and effective data management. Outside of work, he enjoys exploring new restaurants, indie video games, reading, and jogging.

There are *a lot* of resources here in Princeton dedicated to helping students at every stage of their career exploration and planning – it can be a bit overwhelming at first! If you don't know where to begin when thinking about your future plans (I certainly didn't), just start by attending one or two events organized by GradFUTURES and chat with us about what's on your mind. We are more than happy to put you in touch with people who can best help you, and gradually you will build a network that will make the career planning process an overall exciting and empowering experience.

I first learned of GradFUTURES after attending the 'Focus on Future You(s)' professional planning workshop. This workshop along with additional events organized by GradFUTURES have completely transformed the way I think about potential career paths post-PhD and have given me the opportunity to meet amazing people within the Princeton community. As a Professional Development Associate, I look forward to connecting grad students with Princeton's extensive professional development resources as well as helping them envision and progress toward career paths that truly excite them.
