I'm an Assistant Professor of Instruction in the Department of Computer Science.

I did my undergraduate work at Purdue and Illinois and my graduate work at MIT, Stanford, and Texas.

I've worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation (MCC).

Both of my parents were born and raised in Granada, Nicaragua. I was born in New York City and grew up in Miami.
