SP1 310A, 506 Dolorosa St, San Antonio, TX 78204


I am a first year PhD Student at UTSA and an active duty Major in the United States Army. Following my time at UTSA I will be assigned to the United States Military Academy at West Point as a Computer Science instructor. My job title in the Army is a Data Scientist (FA49), but I was previously a Cyber officer and originally commissioned as an Air Defense Artillery officer. Before arriving at UTSA in August 2023, I had been assigned to Army Cyber Command since 2016, performing in a variety of roles spanning operations, leadership, and data driven analysis. As an Air Defense Artillery officer I was stationed at Ft. Bliss, TX, Ft. Sill, OK, Osan AB, Korea, and one deployment to Qatar in support of OEF. Outside of computing, I enjoy sports of all kinds, astronomy, astrophotography, and spending time with my family. I am delighted for this opportunity to continue my education and to join the talented team at UTSA and SPriTELab!
