I grew up in Stockton, California and then moved to Santa Cruz, California to begin my undergraduate studies. With an abundance of gratitude, I worked closely with Professor Pedro Morales-Almazan to conduct and ultimately publish research about the impact of high structure on performance gaps in large-enrollment courses in my second year. During my third year, I was fortunate to study abroad at the University of Barcelona in Spain for a semester. By the end of my third year, I presented my studies in Finite Group Theory at the Undergraduate Mathematics Colloquium hosted by the Association for Women in Mathematics chapter at my university. In my fourth year, I worked under the mentorship of Professor Kasia Jankiewicz to complete a senior thesis project, which was one of my proudest academic accomplishments.
Throughout my undergraduate career, I've seized opportunities that led me to my enlightenment and allowed me to discover my true passions. In addition to understanding the pedagogical perspectives and practices in mathematics, I seek to appreciate math in its purity. As an aspiring research mathematician, I'm thrilled to contribute knowledge to the mathematical community while inspiring others as an equity-minded educator.
Outside of mathematics, I enjoy lifting and exploring the outdoors. I am interested in cultural diversity and travelling allows me to develop my global perspective. My favorite hobby is capturing beautiful moments through photography. Feel free to check out my portfolio here.
