Work history

Christa Gomez joined the Center for Tropical Research in January 2013 as an administrative analyst after working with UCLA's Division of Cardiology for 12 years. A true-blue Bruin, Christa is also an alumnus and has been employed with the UCLA School of Public Health and UCLA Extension.


Christa enjoys baking sweet treats, swing dancing, the color purple, travel, and coming home to sunsets on the beach. The whole world sounds amazing, but if she has to pick, tropical settings will always win. Hawaii, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic are among her favorite destinations. Animals, insects, flora, and fauna of all species have tantalized her since childhood, but the butterfly has earned her highest honors.

General inquiries about the activities of the Center for Tropical Research should be directed to Christa, who coordinates the CTR office for Dr. Thomas Smith.
