EducationPh.D. candidate in Earth and Environmental Engineering at Columbia. I use statistical and physics-based techniques to study the drivers of extreme flooding and to make optimal decisions. I completed my undergraduate study at Yale University in Mechanical Engineering. My current course work is in the areas of applied physics and applied statistics, but I enjoy teaching most courses in science, mathematics, and beyond!

ExperienceIn six years of tutoring I have learned the importance of not simply about knowing material but rather being able to explain it to different students with different learning styles. While all students learn differently, we all learn better when we are engaged and confident. My strategy is to focus on developing core skills and confidence; I'm consistently amazed by what students are able to do when their essentials are strengthened.
HobbiesI'm an avid soccer player/fan/coach/referee -- my teams are AS Roma and Sportivo Luqueño of Paraguay and I play in my share of leagues around the City. I also love to travel, and my work on water, climate, and flooding has taken me to places like Cameroon, Paraguay, England, and Brazil.
