About Me:
I am a 15 year old aspiring to be an astrophysicist in the future. A year ago I designed a project to obtain the mass of a super massive black hole using the Eddington Limit. This was specially challenging as an 8th grader who had never been introduced to physics until that point; I was also in the process of adjusting to a new country. Nevertheless, when I applied to the Physicists Inspiring the Next Generation program (PING) held by NRAO, I was accepted. This was a significant step in my life as not only was I lucky enough to represent the state of NY I also represented the minorities of Hispanics and Women in the hope to promote Science and technology fields. As a PING participant, I learned to operate the 40-foot radio telescope and the twenty-meter radio telescope which provided the observations in my assigned project at NRAO. Along with my team I was responsible of analyzing an area of “high significance” which we determined was the region of Sagittarius A, based on the radio-wave intensity we were able to pick up. I worked with astronomer Natalia Lewandowska, and I was also introduced to the Pulsar Search Collaboratory (PSC) by Dr. Ryan Lynch who sparked my enthusiasm for gravitational waves. To this day, at least once a week, I videoconference with astronomers and physicists as a proud member of the pulsar search collaboratory; looking up to the sky and beyond.
