I am Peruvian American, born and raised in Miami, FL. Currently, I am studying Mechanical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. My research interests span product design, medical device design, design for emerging markets and developing countries. My long term goals include being able to be part of a team that increases equity of health and well-being in developing countries through the application of engineering principles, human-centered design and committed collaboration with the community. I appreciate spending time with my family, meditating and tasting unique teas.
