I am from Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and a rising senior majoring in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez. Currently, I am interested in designing and developing micro-fluidic devices for chronic disease detection which I believe will greatly reduce the death rates by detecting diseases early in their development. My goal is to obtain a PhD in Mechanical or Bio Engineering, which will give me the opportunity to continue to do research and ultimately become a professor. In my spare time I enjoy tutoring, golf and sailing.
