Background: I was born in Plantation, Florida and went to Nova High School in Davie. I was heavily involved in my high school’s engineering program, and quickly earned my Academic Associate and Professional SolidWorks certifications before graduating. My education path was heavily focused on 3D printing, and I gained a lot of experience with 3D printing before going to UF.
Current Activities. I am currently a 3rd year at UF studying Materials Science and Engineering. I am involved with UF’s Generational Relief in Prosthetics (GRiP) as the Adaptive Gaming Division’s SolidWorks Team Captain. I am also a part of UF’s Materials Advantage and Ceramic Mug Drop design team. Additionally, I tutor underclassmen as a Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers Tutor and am actively working to bring back UF’s Blade Smithing Design team. At APRG I assist in CAD modeling and assist with other members’ projects. I also have begun research into using metamaterials for cloaking. Outside of APRG, I am assisting another research lab with 3D printing and modeling various components for their experiments with dry aerosols.
