Hello! I was born in Bogotá, Colombia and moved to the United States during high school. I’m majoring in Chemical Engineering at the University of Connecticut. My research interests are within the fields of renewable energy, environmental engineering, and computational engineering. As a UConn McNair and LSAMP Scholar,  I have been involved in on-campus research projects related to modeling air pollution deposition to different US Watersheds and helping in the development of low-cost, high-efficiency nano-array based diesel oxidation catalysts. My goals are obtaining my Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and working in a team that helps preserve the environment and also helps solve the energy and water crisis. I love dancing, reading comics, watching documentaries, and traveling.
