I am rising senior at the University of Central Florida, majoring in Computer Science. I am originally from sunny Guayama, Puerto Rico. I have had diverse research experiences in the following fields: micro-mobility, city science, photonics, natural language processing, and youth online safety. I am committed to learning how to use computer science, in combination with other fields, to improve the lives of underserved individuals and communities. When I am not focusing on academia, I like to split my time between volunteering for The Nazarene Fund and for Every.Last.One. Overall, I am passionate about applying science, art, and technology to create a safer, more equitable, creative, prosperous, and sustainable world. My favorite things to do during my free time are learning about filmmaking and all things Old Hollywood related, vegan baking, and dissecting reality television.
