About Me

I am a third-year graduate teaching assistant for the Mathematics Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). For more information, please refer to my CV. I was born and raised in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and I graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 2014. I attended UNL Math Day throughout high school, and it was my senior-year trip to Math Day that convinced me to study math and attend UNL. I am also fluent in Spanish since my parents are from Peru. 

In 2012, I got to visit Machu Picchu: The Lost City of the Incas.

Other

During my free-time, I like to go on walks, hang out with friends, play board/card games, go bowling, and travel whenever possible. I am also an avid follower of Nebraska Football. I have gone to every home football game at Memorial Stadium since Fall 2014.

The Greatest Fan in all of College Football!
