Hello hello. I am a PhD student at Caltech Astronomy. I previously attended El Camino College where I earned an AS in Physics (magna cum laude), then finished at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona earning my BS in Physics (magna cum laude). I am biracial (African-American and Mexican), grew up in Southern California (Carson, CA then Torrance, CA), and am very family-oriented. My main goals in life are to learn as much about the universe as I can, to share that knowledge with others, to do right by those I come into contact with, and to stay true to myself. Progress and good vibes.

My Current Research

Placing empirical constraints on the core-collapse supernova (CCSN) yields of zero metallicity massive stars using Very Metal-Poor Damped Lyman Alpha Absorbers (VMP DLAs). More details and a written report can be found in the Research portion of my site.

All current/previous researched topics

  • Galactic Chemical Evolution, Zero-Metallicity Core Collapse Supernova yields, Very-Metal Poor Damped Lyman-Alpha Absorber
  • Stellar Population Synthesis Models, Stellar Evolution, Massive Stars (Modeling Project that used UV, Visible and IR Data)
  • Pre-Main Sequence Stars, Young Stellar Objects (IR and X-ray data)
  • Quasars, high redshift quasars, observational cosmology (Visible Data)
