I am an undergraduate student in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the University of Texas at El Paso (Go Miners!) who has been involved in research projects on tissue engineering, powdered metallurgy, and failure analysis. I enjoy meeting people from every walk of life, and learning as much as I can from everyone I meet. My hobbies include (but are not limited to) making and listening to music, cooking, going to concerts, and travelling. My current goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering to later be involved in academia – especially helping outreach programs like MSRP!
