Carlos was born and raised in the sunny island of Puerto Rico. Upon completing high school there, he moved to Cambridge, MA in 2012 to attend MIT for undergrad. He graduated from MIT in 2016 with a BS in Biological Engineering; he decided to stay in Boston to begin his MD training at Harvard Medical School. His career interests lie in Medical Education and Medical Device Innovation. He decided to pursue surgical and medical training in ophthalmology. On January 2020, he matched into OHSU’s Ophthalmology residency program in Portland, Oregon, where Carlos currently lives. 

Carlos has experience tutoring Boston public high school students on the SAT in a combined rowing/swimming and academic preparation program called Amphibious Achievement while he was at MIT. He was also a TA/grader for several classes in his major, including Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Computational Modeling of Biological Systems. Throughout medical school, he learned how to become a better teacher while teaching first year medical students pathophysiology. Currently, he teaches medical students on a daily basis through his residency rotations.

Outside of school, Carlos enjoys running, rowing, biking and swimming. He walked on to the MIT Varsity Men's Lightweight Crew Team his freshman year and completed four years of NCAA Division 1 Collegiate Rowing. Now, Carlos has picked up hiking in the beautiful landscape that is the Pacific Northwest.
