In a modern world, science can be an intelligible language for all, and with my work, I hope to open more opportunities for underrepresented communities to become involved in scientific conversation.
I work within the Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations, the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory, and the NWS Storm Prediction Center. My research interests include bilingual risk & crisis communication and next-generation warning systems.
Beyond the research landscape, I am a bilingual meteorologist for MyRadar, a weather application accessed by 50 million users. I lead Spanish-language weather stories that reach international audiences.
My work has been published and recognized across the entire enterprise. In 2022, I was named as the recipient for the American Meteorological Society Award for Early Career Professional Achievement “for innovative and extensive collaboration in risk communication for Spanish-speaking communities and leadership as an exceptional member across multiple AMS boards and committees.”
“And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping that the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition ere long.”
