Dr. Alvin Anene, M.D., is a vascular and interventional radiologist and is a partner at Radiology Associates of North Texas in Fort Worth, the largest privately owned radiology practice in the nation. He was born in Fort Worth and grew up in the Arlington and Mansfield areas. He came to UTA in 2001 and participated in undergraduate research while working toward a B.S. in Biology. He graduated summa cum laude from the Honors College with a minor in chemistry in 2004. After graduating, he assisted in starting a home health business with his parents while studying or the MCAT. He then began medical school at UT Southwestern in Dallas, graduating in 2009. He also did his residency at UTSW, focusing on diagnostic radiology and completing his residency in 2014. He followed that with a one-year fellowship at UTSW in 2015, where he was a clinical instructor with a subspecialty of vascular and interventional radiology. During his time at UTSW, he published six peer-reviewed articles and has presented his research at multiple national meetings. Dr. Anene is a member of multiple professional medical societies including the Society of Interventional Radiology, the Society of Neurointerventional Surgery, and the Radiological Society of North America, among others. He and his wife, Gabriela — who is also a UTA graduate — have four children.
Birthplace: Fort Worth
Years at UTA: 2001-04
Favorite professors: Greg Hale, Organic Chemistry. “He always had a knack for seeing nuances that normally you’d only expect the top graduate students to see,” Hale said. “I remember he was always very involved on campus, in leadership roles in student organizations. It seemed like everybody knew Alvin. He was a brilliant student; I’d say one of the top two I ever had in all my years of teaching Organic Chemistry.”
Advice for students: “Delayed gratification is a concept I adhered to during my college years. Perseverance pays off. Pay attention to small details. Stay balanced.”

We invite you to become
involved with the College
Hello, I'm Dr. Ignacio Nuñez, chair of the College of Science Advisory Council and a proud UTA alumnus (B.S. in Biology, 1975). I would love to help get you involved on campus again. I was a first-generation college student, and UTA made it possible for me to attend medical school and create a life vastly different than that of my parents. Did UTA change your life too? Let's work together to help the next generation of Mavericks. To learn more, please contact College of Science Director of Development Christie Mosley-Eckler at817-272-1497 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christin Milman loves math, and she wants to help young students understand it better so they can appreciate it and possibly love it, too. ilman is a senior mathematics major and is also a member of UTeach Arlington, UTA’s secondary science and math teacher preparatory program. She plans to graduate in Spring 2018 with a mathematics degree as well as a Math Teaching Certification for grades 7-12. “After a of couple months of tutoring high school students, I had seen so many who were struggling with math, and even some misconceptions about foundational concepts that were leading them to more pitfalls,” she said. “I really wanted to help them at the classroom level and catch those misconceptions and set them up for success, rather than trying to rewire years of bad practice.” Milman says when she heard about UTeach and talked to program advisor Erin Gonzales, it sounded like the perfect scenario. “I would have a very versatile degree and a deeper understanding about math, as well as the option to teach students and hopefully inspire them to love math as much as I do.” She has excelled in her studies and has received various awards, including the UTA President Charter Scholarship, the UTeach Sophomore Scholarship, the R. Kannan Memorial Scholarship, and the NSF Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship. This semester she began serving as president of UTA’s chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics, which this summer was named the top AWM chapter in the nation for fundraising and sustainability, and Milman traveled to the Mathematical Association of America MathFest conference in Chicago in July to accept the award for the chapter. She spent part of the summer learning Chinese in a Study Abroad program in China (she’s minoring in Chinese). After graduating in May, she plans to apply for internships and hopes to save up enough money to spend a year or two with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), a nonprofit Christian missionary organization.
Birthplace: Singapore; grew up in Brighton, Colorado
Current status: Senior
Favorite professorsr/instructor: Christopher Kribs, professor of mathematics, and Richard Chandler, graduate teaching assistant. “When Dr. Kribs taught my Calculus 3 class, his explanations were always so detailed and thorough, and I could really picture the concepts. Not to mention his 3D drawings were like art. As for Dr. Chandler, I appreciated the way he brought life to Elementary Number Theory and made difficult concepts so much more manageable. Ideas were made concise and to the point.”
Where she hopes to be in 5 years: “In 5 years, I see myself in my cute little classroom, with lots of collaborative, bright, young minds working together to understand mathematics."
