About Me

I am a fourth-year graduate teaching assistant and doctoral candidate for the Mathematics Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). For more information, please refer to my CV. I was born and raised in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, and I graduated from Scottsbluff High School in 2014. I attended UNL Math Day throughout high school, and it was my senior-year trip to Math Day that inspired me to study math at UNL. I am also fluent in Spanish since my parents are from Peru. 

In 2012, I got to visit Machu Picchu: the Lost City of the Incas.

Research

I am interested in conducting research in mathematical biology.  My current research interests include the application of stability theory and the usage of computer simulations to analyze the population dynamics of herbivore-plant models. I am advised by Richard Rebarber and Brigitte Tenhumberg.

Teaching & Educational Services

I was the associate convener for the UNL Math Resource Center (MRC) during the 2020-2021 academic year. I also collaborated on the development of an OER Calculus Textbook during the summer of 2019.

Here is a list of the most recent math courses I have taught (or was a teaching assistant for) at UNL:

  • MATH 435 (Math in the City) - spring 2022
  • MATH 102* (Trigonometry) - spring 2022
  • MATH 435 - fall 2021
  • MATH 221 (Differential Equations Recitation) - fall 2021
  • MATH 810T (Algebra for Algebra Teachers) - summer 2021**
  • MATH 104* (Applied Calculus) - spring 2021**
  • MATH 101* (College Algebra) - fall 2020**
  • MATH 104*  - summer 2020**
  • MATH 101* - spring 2020**
  • MATH 101* - fall 2019
  • MATH 107 (Calculus II Recitation) - spring 2019
  • MATH 106 (Calculus I Recitation) - fall 2018

NOTE:   *  denotes that I was the instructor of record for that course, and  **  denotes that the course was taught online via Zoom (or had a mixture of in-person and remote learning).

If you are a student of mine in any of the courses listed above, please consult with Canvas for additional course information.

Other

During my free-time I like to go on walks, hang out with friends, play board/card games, go bowling, eat at restaurants, and travel whenever possible. I am also a fan of the Nebraska Cornhuskers (GO BIG RED!), and I have gone to almost every home football game at Memorial Stadium since fall 2014. 

The Greatest Fan in all of College Football!

Fun fact: this picture is from the 2018 Nebraska vs. Akron game which ended up getting cancelled due to stormy weather.
