Xandria Quichocho (she/her/hers) is a Black + Chamorro physicist recently graduated with a B.S. in Physics from Texas State University and is currently pursuing her Physics Ph.D. at Michigan State University. Her main undergraduate research focuses on how the intersections of race, gender, and sexuality interact with women of color and LGBTQ+ women’s identity as physicists.
She spends much of her free time with her dog Facetiming her three sisters and mamma. In an effort to have “hobbies” outside of the classroom, she climbs rocks and rides her bike around San Marcos, Texas, continues to study and teach cello, and frequently performs “Rainbow Connection” to an empty room on her ukulele when spending late nights in the education lab.
