I am from the border region of Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México and El Paso, Texas, US. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Pure Mathematics and a minor in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts in June 2019 advised by Professor Gigliola Staffilani, and sponsored by an MIT Scholarship.
During my time at MIT I was fortunate to have been a research assistant to Professor Jonathan Gruber and Professor Esther Duflo learning about healthcare and development economics and sponsored by the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). I also had the fortune to intern with Practical Education Network (PEN) in Accra, Ghana learning and working on teacher training under Dr. Heather Beem and sponsored by the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives.
Following graduation I was a research intern at the Pontificate Catholic University of Chile in Santiago mentored by Professor Héctor Pastén and at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences-Rwanda in Kigali mentored by Professor Célestin Kurujyibwami (University of Rwanda) and Doctor Herine Otieno-Menya (AIMS-Teacher Training Program), sponsored by a Carroll L. Wilson Award and the MIT International Science and Technology Initiatives.
I am currently a graduate student in mathematics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor advised by Professor Kartik Prasanna and Professor David Speyer and part of the Marjorie Lee Browne Scholars Program, sponsored by a Graduate Student Instructor Fellowship, the Marjorie Lee Browne Scholars Program, and a Rackham Science Award.
I am currently active in efforts regarding mathematics education and teacher training through Practical Education Network (practicaleducationnetwork.com) and the Rwanda Mathematics Olympiad Program (rwandamatholympiad.com).
