She is a Puertorrican climate scientist, who completed her doctorate at Rutgers University, focusing on the chemistry, transport and impacts of air pollutants on the cryosphere from Antarctica to Greenland. She has a long track record of community organizing, capacity building and support in Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region. As the Latin America Regional Coordinator for Citizens Climate International she works on climate governance and ethics to expand the civic space at the UNFCCC and national levels. She is also part of the coordinating teams of US ACE Coalition and the UN Education, Communication, and Outreach Stakeholder community (ECOS). She is also the founder of Climate Trace, an organization that aims to build a grassroots Climate Agenda for Puerto Rico that translates into policy by building bridges between citizens, policymakers and scientists. She has won the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow Award and her work has been supported by the Union of Concerned Scientists to make citizens’ assemblies to build a community-led NDC for Puerto Rico, a blueprint that has served to coordinate and deploy citizens assemblies globally for broadening spaces for civic engagement at the local and international level.
