Current MSc student of the Energy and Earth Resources Program in the Jackson School of Geosciences. I am originally from Bogotá, Colombia, and I did my undergraduate studies at Texas A&M University where I earned a degree in Geophysics with minors in Geology and Mathematics. I am currently a part of the TexNet- CISR, and RISC cohorts from the Bureau of Economic Geology that are researching the link between oil and gas operations and induced seismicity in the state of Texas.
My work is focused on gathering and analyzing wastewater injection data from O&G operating companies and their relationship with induced seismicity in the Texas Panhandle.
