"I was born and raised in Ibarra-Ecuador, a medium-sized city in the Ecuadorean Andes and moved here to study physics. I plan to use the money towards tuition for the next academic year. This summer I started a position at the center for Quantum Materials at the university where I work with graduate students in the growth and characterization of cuprate superconductors for use in research on their properties in several regimes. I am however interested in quantum computing and hope to study it at a graduate level in hopes of contributing to the development of the area."
