Howdy! I'm a first-year political science Ph.D. student at The Ohio State University specializing in international relations, political methodology, and formal theory. My current research interests include great power politics, international conflict, diplomatic history, and the international order with a particular focus on Asia and US-China competition. I was named a 2022-2023 Diversity Fellow by the American Political Science Association.
I'm a proud Mexican-American and Spanish-American originally from Corpus Christi, Texas. Before coming to Ohio State, I received my A.A. in Liberal Arts from Del Mar College (with honors) and earned my B.A. in Political Science and History with a minor in Chinese from Trinity University (with honors) in San Antonio, Texas. At Trinity, I conducted undergraduate research as a Ronald E. McNair Scholar, Mach Research Fellow, and Mellon Undergraduate Research Fellow.
