I am a rising senior majoring in physics with a minor in pure mathematics at The University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. I am a research student at the UPRM Compact Muon Solenoid research group. My goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in theoretical physics and work on field theory or Beyond the Standard Model physics. During graduate school, I plan to participate in diversity and inclusion groups to promote interest in physics to fellow Hispanics/LatinX. During the MSRP, I am working with Jesse Thaler on the Energy Flow Network architecture and its applications to collider events.

In my free time, I enjoy walking with friends, drinking coffee, reading, and sightseeing.
