I am an undergraduate senior studying Chemical Engineering at Columbia University. I am a research assistant in Professor McNeill's in the Department of Chemical Engineering where I study oil-brine interactions. I have previously done work testing the effects of different organic molecules on the formation of brown carbon. I am from East Los Angeles, California. I enjoy many activities, from playing video games to playing basketball or any other sports. I also enjoy playing my guitar and has been one of my passions since I was young. I plan on pursuing a Ph.D in Chemical Engineering after I graduate.
