I am a proud Filipino and an Astronomy PhD student at the University of Texas at Austin. I previously studied at the University of Michigan, where I earned a B.S. in Astronomy and Astrophysics and a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Physics. My main areas of research are in galaxies and stellar populations.
I love doing outreach to inspire and educate the public in astronomy and astrophysics– to get them as enthusiastic about it as I am! My dream is to spread my passion for science to my home country by providing research and post-grad opportunities for astronomy in the Philippines.
When I’m not busy adding to our understanding of the universe, you’ll find me singing, playing the guitar and piano, reading, and dreaming of traveling the world.
