More about me

 I was born in Venezuela and moved to United States when I was 5 years old. I moved back to Caracas to finish high school and pursue Geophysical Engineering. Shortly after that I moved back to United States where I did my Masters in Geophysics.

I am an avid volunteer in professional organizations and engage in activities that increase diversity in my field. In 2020, I started contributing to open-source code and teaching other latinas how to code (GeoLatinas).

In my free time I love to hike, take pictures of landscapes, and practice yoga as a certified yoga instructor. I enjoy spending time in book stores and "trying" to cook.
