As a first-generation university graduate turned higher education researcher, I aim to work towards a simple (and yet incomprehensibly complex) concept: a higher education that is accessible, affordable, and of the highest possible quality. I was introduced to higher education governance and policy as a student leader and continue advocating for a better higher education system today. I aim to approach and tackle challenges through foundational collaboration and communication.

I’m young but I have spent year studying and observing higher education systems focusing on governance and strategic planning.

My friends know me as a (admittedly) tense but easy going person usually accompanied with my mini dachshund (Cotija) and a cup of coffee while talking about food.
