PROTON Scholar

I am a physics and astronomy double major from San Jose, CA. I have a deep passion for the art of music and is fascinated by the physics of music. I have sang with the music department’s gospel choir and was a part of UC Choral Ensembles.

Research: working with Prof. Alessandra Lanzara in the physics dept on “Gating thin films”


“NERDS has given me the support I needed to continue by studies. During the second half of my sophomore year I sustained severe injuries and developed major medical issues. I struggled dealing with school while tending the problems I developed in my personal life and NERDS helped me so much getting me back on my feet.”
