I am a graduate student at the University of Texas At Arlington. Before I joined UTA, I worked as an undergraduate researcher on a NASA Ames/CU Boulder project called DAPPER. There, I helped develop a satellite that will be sent to the moon to study 21cm cosmology from the Dark Ages. I also received a CERN REU internship as an undergrad. My graduate work is in particle physics, where I enjoy doing research at the cutting edge of science. My research group is focused on studying the neutrino through developing novel particle detection experiments, in particular, an experiment called DUNE. Neutrinos could hold the answers to fundamental questions like, “Why does matter exist?”, and “How are Black Holes formed?”. Seeking the answers to these questions drives me to learn and contribute more to physics. Coming from a first generation/low income background, I am also passionate about helping others navigate their way through early career development.
