Oscar Vidal Rubio
M.S. Candidate, Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems
I was born in Peru but was raised in Western Massachusetts. Recently, I graduated from UMass Amherst with a B.S. in Computer Science. Prior to that, I attended Holyoke Community College where I earned an A.S. in Programming and an A.S. in Mathematics. Growing up, I always enjoyed experimenting with different ways of growing food and being outside, looking for different bugs. I am really excited to study sustainable agriculture and food systems because my goal is to be able to create software that helps educate people about the Earth’s resources. My favorite things to do are traveling, exploring new places, and hydroponic gardening. I am also an avid soccer fan and skier.
