About Me

Hello! I am currently a third-year PhD student at the University of Minnesota. I graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelors of Science in Applied Mathematics and a minor in Computer Science from San Diego State University. Outside of academics, I enjoy the outdoors and climbing!

I am also a co-leader of the Council for the Advancement of Underrepresented Scientists and Engineers (CAUSE). We are dedicated to the recruitment, retention, and professional development of graduate students of color and first generation college students within the College of Science and Engineering.

What I'm up to

I am currently studying for the Complex Preliminary Exam and a supporting mentor for the PolyMath Jr. REU helping with the Ramsey Theory project.

  • Bilingual (English/Spanish)

Research Interest

While at San Diego State, my main interest was in algebraic combinatorics. In particular, I studied relationships between numerical semigroups and polytopes under Dr. Christopher O'Neill. I also participated in MSRI-UP where I had the opportunity to work with Lie algebras under Dr. Pamela E. Harris. Since starting graduate school, I found myself drawn to the application of mathematics to real world problems and because of this I have started reading under Dr. Richard McGehee about the mathematics behind climate change.
