I moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2006. In 2017 I graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. During my time at UNM I worked at Sandia National Laboratories as a Student Intern in the Power Sources Technology Group. Currently I am applying the experiences and knowledge gained from SNL and UNM in my pursuit of a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering here at ASU. Outside of classes and research I am married to my high school sweetheart. I also enjoy working out, personal health, and helping others reach their goals.
