I was born in Chicago, IL and raised in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. I am a mechanical engineering major at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus. My research interest focus on space systems and thermal sciences. I plan to pursue a PhD in the field of astronautics to perform research while helping inspire underrepresented students to follow a career in the STEM areas. In my spare time I enjoy photography and snorkeling.
