I am an astrophysicist in the Chandra Director's Office and former co-Director of the Latino Initiative Programs. I study dying sun-like stars with space and ground based telescopes (Chandra, Hubble, Kepler, TESS, SMA, GALEX). I am a strong advocate for improving scientific mentoring and expanding opportunities for underrepresented groups in the STEM fields.
