Dr. Arianna DiFrancesco

Welcome to Biology! My name is Arianna DiFrancesco, and this is my 5th year teaching Biology. I am originally from Rome Italy, but I have lived in Houston for more than 15 years.

My students call me Mrs. D. or Dr. D. 

I love science and I love teaching. I started teaching in my second year of college, and I wasable to teach most of my friends and got to grade them in the lab. I was able to get a Bachelor of science and a Master in Biology at 22 years old and I continued my studies in human pathology. I came to the United States in 1996, to complete some experiments for my PhD thesis and I never left. I am married to Brad, a professor at UH and I have 3 daughters.

I like walking and trekking, canoeing, and iceskating. To relax I listen to audio-books and bake cakes. 

My conference times are:

Monday and Wednesday 9:00-10:30

Friday  2:40-4:00
