About me

I am a fifth year Ph.D. student in Mathematics and a Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellow. My main research interests include adaptive dynamics, mathematical modeling and ordinary and partial differential equations which I study under the advisory of Professor Zoi Rapti.

While obtaining a B.S. in Mathematics with a Minor in Finance from the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras, I discovered my passion for mentoring, teaching, applied mathematics, and interdisciplinary research.

I also enjoy taking pictures, drawing, and bowling.
