About Me

I was raised in Buena Park, CA and I obtained my B.S. in Chemical Engineering at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona in 2015. I started attending Purdue in August of 2015. For my senior project for my B.S. degree, I investigated Colloid Coagulation with IET equations alongside Dr. Lloyd Lee. For my Honors Capstone, I Investigated maximum heat capacity behavior with relation to density for a Lennard-Jones fluid also alongside Dr. Lloyd Lee. I hope to use my education at Purdue in the field of catalysis to become a better researcher and also a better person overall. My hobbies include scuba diving, singing and hiking.

Project Description

My research involves studying the partial oxidation of propylene by O2 and H2 over Au/TiO2 catalysts.
