About me



I am a sixth year math PhD student at the University of Utah. I work in arithmetic geometry, and my advisor is Stefan Patrikis.

I got my Bachelors degree from University of Colorado, Boulder.  

I am currently interested in topics related to monodromy representations that appear in realizations of motives, such as Galois representations and local systems on complex varieties.

Service



AWM-RTG Conference

I am a co-organizer for the conference BRIDGES.

Latinos in Action (LIA)

Since 2016, I have been involved in the University of Utah chapter for Latinos in Action. Latinos In Action (LIA) offers an asset-based approach to bridging the graduation and opportunity gap for Latino students, working from within the educational system to create positive change. I have served as the academic co-chair for the University of Utah chapter of LIA. As part of my responsibilities, I helped gather information and give a presentation about applying to graduate school for the members of our chapter.
