I am an undergraduate student from Puerto Rico currently pursuing my second degree in Computer Science at the University of Puerto Rico, Ri­o Piedras Campus; my first degree is in Psychology. My current research interests are in optimizing software and network security through the use of artificial intelligence. I plan to pursue a PhD in Computer Science, and work both in academia and industry to build innovative software. In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, programming, and surrounding myself with music.
