Welcome visitor! I'm a fourth year PhD student at UC Santa Cruz working my way towards becoming la Profe Hermosillo Ruiz :'). I hope you learn about my research and my passions through this page. I have also added resources that helped me get to grad school. I'm a first generation student getting my PhD, and I'd like others to know they can achieve great things as well! :)
I currently study the orbital dynamics and evolution of our solar system via the Kuiper Belt. I'm also working on some projects thinking about the dynamics and planet architecture that create extrasolar debris disks. I am interested in all dynamics processes that shape and evolve planetary systems and debris disks.

Here are a few resources that I used when preparing for GRE, NSFGRFP, and applying to PhD programs in Astronomy in the United States.
I have loved taking pictures as long as I can remember. My disposable cameras saw many trees, rivers, friends, and blurry moon phases. Follow my photography instagram account @bylaarcy7 > (read: by la arcy 7) to see more.
