I am a Physics major aiming to obtain a Ph.D in Nuclear Physics. I was born and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. In order to pursue my education, I cross the Ciudad Juarez – El Paso boarder and attend classes at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). My ultimate goal is to perform research at a world-wide renowned facility, such as Los Alamos National Laboratory or Oak Ridge National Laboratory, as well as to teach multiple Physics courses at a university. I enjoy science and working in community projects.
