I am a graduate student at the School for Environment and Sustainability at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. I am completing my masters degree in Conservation Ecology. My research topic is agroecology, specifically how carbon and nitrogen ratios in from shade trees in coffee agroecosystems influence ground-dwelling ant communities. My over-arching theme is decomposition and nutrient cycling in ecosystems and I got about answering questions about this in various ways (e.g. ants). At the University of Michigan, I have served as a graduate student instructor in two courses both at the undergraduate and graduate level. Having the opportunity to teach and mentor students at those levels is very exciting. Nevertheless, I love to introduce students all levels of new concepts and ideas. I most enjoy teaching/tutoring concepts of ecology, biology, chemistry, and environmental science. I am also a native Spanish speaker, hence tutoring Spanish lessons comes naturally to me. I am committed to helping move beyond their barriers and excel in their education. When I am not in the laboratory, I enjoy running, hiking and training with my dog.
