I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Public Policy at Northeastern University. Previously, I earned a Master’s Degree in Sustainability and an Environmental Policy Certificate from the Harvard Extension School. My academic background includes a degree in Agroindustrial Engineering from Universidad de San Buenaventura, and I have experience working in the agri-food and chemical industries. My research focuses on climate finance, nature-based solutions, and promoting energy equity. My research is also motivated by ensuring that marginalized communities build power in environmental decision-making.
