I’m an astrophysicist working at the Pennsylvania State University.

I’m involved in several projects related to high-energy astrophysics. I study high-energy gamma rays with the HAWC Observatory, located in Mexico; mostly involved with the search of gamma-ray emission from large structures. Another project involves the observation of high-energy neutrinos using the IceCube Observatory located in the South Pole.

The third project is a multimessenger framework called AMON, which looks for coincidences of events obtained by different detectors or observatories. This is a pioneer project in the search of multimessenger sources.

I earned my PhD at Michigan Technological University. My thesis was about observations of high-energy gamma-rays from the Northern Fermi Bubble Region with the HAWC Observatory, advised by Dr. Petra Huentemeyer.
