As an undergraduate student, she assisted CARICOOS with the granulometric analysis of sand to interpret the morphological changes in the beaches of Rincón. Her master’s thesis focused on conducting an economic, social, and energy feasibility analysis considering recycling crushed glass as fill material on beaches as mitigation for erosion problems in Puerto Rico. She currently works as an engineer at CMA Architects and Engineers LLC; working on hydrological and hydraulic analyses, drainage modeling and site design, lining in coastal areas and rivers, and drinking and rainwater distribution systems.
