Physicist and Master in Astronomy of the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. I finished my Ph.D. in Physics at the University of California Berkeley in early 2022. My specialty focuses on astrophysics and space science. In particular, I participated in NASA programs that seek to implement new technologies for observing the Sun with space instruments. It also highlights my permanent interest in broad access to high-quality education. I have been a founding member of groups and collectives in the area of Astronomy in Colombia, such as the Astronomical Divulgation Group and the Solar Astrophysics Group (GoSA) of the Universidad Nacional at Bogotá and the Colombian Students of Astronomy Network. I am an active member of the “Education and Public Outreach” team of the Solar Physics Division of the American Society of Astronomy and Science Clubs of Colombia.
