I am senior majoring in Chemical Engineering at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (UPRM) with a minor in applied in Applied Mathematics. I am very passionate about research and for the last year, I have worked with quantum computational methods to study the catalytic performance of different zeolites. I aspire to complete a PhD in Chemical Engineering and from there become a professor who actively participates in research. As for my hobbies, they include watching thought-provoking TV drama shows (e.g. Mad Men, House of Cards and Orange is the New Black) and reading fiction novels.
