About Me

I'm a proud Mexican-American and Spanish-American, originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. Before coming to Ohio State, I received my B.A. in Political Science and History with a minor in Chinese from Trinity University (with honors) in San Antonio, Texas. I earned my A.A. in Liberal Arts from Del Mar College (with honors) in Corpus Christi, Texas.


I conducted undergraduate research at Trinity as a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, Mach Research Fellow, and Mellon Undergraduate Research Fellow. was named a 2022-2023 Diversity Fellow by the American Political Science Association.

Beyond the academy, I enjoy running, cooking, café hopping, watching television, listening to pop/R&B music, and appreciating everything Britney Spears. #FREEBRITNEY
