Research Interests Climate Change's Effects on Indigenous People
Program STEM


Fun fact: I have waited 12+ hours in Times Square on New Year's Eve on two separate occasions.

I was born in Brooklyn but raised in San Diego. My intended concentration is environmental science on the inequality track because I’m passionate about nature and social justice, but I'm also greatly interested in astrophysics due to my fascination with space and love for mathematics. In addition to those fields, I enjoy learning Spanish and about different cultures. I like to play tennis, hike, travel, and go to concerts as well as be involved with education programs for underprivileged youth in my free time. I’m excited to partake in PSP and can't wait to see where it takes us.
