Who I am: I am in a 3-2 program where I just finished my third year at North Central College for a B.A. in Physics and I will be attending the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, starting in the fall, for two years for a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering. I was born in Mexico and came to the United States when I was two years old where I have lived in since then. I am a huge soccer fan and love to follow teams and players, play FIFA, and play with friends.
Research: The project was divided into two sections, to validate publications from the MINERvA project and to add a sample into NUISANCE. The plots that were validated were those for the 2016 MINERvA article as well as the slides from the NuInt meeting. The sample was added in order to allow for future analysis with double differential cross sections for the transverse and parallel muon momentum.
