I am a rising junior at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. At Gettysburg, I study Physics, Africana Studies, and Peace & Justice Studies. Outside of class I am a member of the Latin American Student Association; I am on the organizing committee for a discussion group called Let's Talk About It; I have a radio show called Voice of a Generation, where I and my co-hosts fact-check and provide multiple perspectives on pressing social issues; I am the social media chair for the Peace & Justice Studies Council at my school; and I am chair of the budget committee for the Consortium of North American Peace Programs (CONAPP). Last summer I carried out research on PDMS (Polydimethlysiloxane) deterioration using my school's van de Graaf proton accelerator.
Currently, I am interested in the intersection of the physics world and social issues. My hope is to help physicists deconstruct their roles in social change, and to create learning and teaching environments in which all physicists-- no matter their identity-- can thrive.
