Thinking of Science as a Team Sport

Always try to look into new opportunities and not be closed to them no matter what they are.

In high school, though, he had an AP chemistry teacher who would introduce him not only to the field of chemistry but also to the biotech sector. Cavacas would go on to study chemistry in college, graduating in 2015, and work in biotechnology. Now at Amgen in Rhode Island, Cavacas works as a senior associate scheduler in manufacturing.
