Education: B.S. Environmental Engineering, Colorado State University

Current Position: Undergraduate Research Assistant

Supported By: JPB Fellow Ellison Carter. Project: Impacts of Energy-Use and Indoor Environmental Quality on Community Health and Well-being. Spatial Variations in Ultrafine Particle and Black Carbon Concentrations in Bucaramanga, Colombia.

Having been born in the small, mountain town of Durango, Mexico and raised in the picturesque town of Trinidad, Colorado, I was greatly influenced to seek a degree that would allow me to research and develop solutions to environmental issues. I am currently pursing a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Engineering with a focus on public health. A career in sustainability engineering and urban, green infrastructure is my current goal. With the support of the JPB funds, I am currently working on an indoor environmental quality study aimed at understanding the impacts of a government incentivized energy efficiency retrofit program. I have also worked on spatially analyzing ultrafine particle and black carbon concentration data measured in Bucaramanga, Colombia for land-use regression modeling.
