About

August 2012 – present Titular Researched C at INAOE. Devoted to the study of Terahertz photonics sources and detectors, during a Sabatical leave from October 2011 to September 2012. Development of a fNIRS brain imaging setup to study brain after stroke-like events. Teaching graduate level courses in biophotonics, lasers and nonlinear optics. Responsible of training graduate level students and research projects. Editorial board and scientific committee in 2012 for the Mexican Academy of Optics; producing the proceedings for the annual meeting in 2012. Faculty advisor for the INAOE Chapter of the OSA. Aug 2006 – Sept 2012 Titular Researcher B at INAOE. Devoted to the study of Terahertz radiation for medical applications developing novel THz source and bolometric detectors. Producing one patent. Teaching graduate level courses in biophotonics, lasers and nonlinear optics. Responsible of training graduate level students and research projects. Editorial board and scientific committee from 2003 to 2007 for the Mexican Academy of Optics; producing the proceedings for the annual meeting from 2000 to 2006. Collaboration on the outreach programs at INAOE, on the “national science week”, “science for teachers week” and the “science for youth workshop”. Faculty advisor for the INAOE Chapter of the OSA. Aug 1999 - Jul 2006. – Titular Researcher A at INAOE. Setup a laboratory to measure and characterize nonlinear parameters of materials. Teaching graduate level courses in lasers and nonlinear optics. Responsible of training graduate level students and research projects. Collaborate in the prehispanic mural “Los bebedores” study, digitazing and identification hidden detail on it. Working in the identification of new configuration and potentials of the paper “nonlinear common path interferometer: an image processor”. Collaboration on the outreach programs at INAOE, on the “national science week” and the “science for youth workshop”. Faculty advisor for the INAOE Chapter of the OSA since 2004. Responsible for R&D of laser telemeters for the Mexican Navy. Cofounder of the “Optoelectronic Science and Engineering group” and member of the INAOE’S optoelectronic committee. Aug 1999 - Dec 1999. Postdoctoral researcher at the School of Optics/ Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers” (CREOL) of the University of Central Florida Orlando Fl. USA. Study of the electrical properties of photoconductor polymers photoactivated with low level white light. These materials have application in the information control at the millimetric region of the spectrum. Aug 1998 – Jul 1999. Associated Researched C at INAOE, under the Incorporation Scholarship of the “Fondo para Retener en Mexico y Repatriar a los Investigadores Mexicanos” CONACyT. On this period I collaborated with the Photonics and Physical Optics group. On this period I obtained the international collaborative project (C-30046-A) “Determinación de los parámetros no lineales de nuevos materiales orgánicos para evaluar su posible aplicación en telecomunicaciones” under the CONACyT-NSF-CISE program, from December 1999 to December 2002. I also collaborated with the Mexican Academy of Optics, editing the Academy bulletin for the 1998 annual meeting, and was member of the local committee of the ETOP'99 meeting at Cancún on July 23 to 30, 1999. Jan 1993 - May 1998. PhD student under the supervision of Prof. George I. Stegeman at CREOL / School of Optics at UCF. On my dissertation novel problems involved with second order cascading nonlinear problems to manipulate and control of information using integrated optics were identified. Since 1994 I was responsible of a world class laboratory. Builded a pulsed color center laser and a CW fiber laser with operation around 1.55 µm. Using these lasers, measurements and collaborations were performed with visitors from the Universities of Nice in France, Saint Andrews in Scotland, Rome in Italy, Polytechnic of Munich in Germany, and Stanford in the USA. On the eight laboratories under supervision of Prof. Stegeman, I trained five doctoral students. Responsible for performed corrective and preventive maintenance of commercial and home made gas and solid state lasers, pulsed (nano-, pico-, femto-second) and CW, on different spectral regions; as well as characterize, control and detection techniques required. I developed control systems for experiments and image processing using almost all the commercial software available. I was actively involved with the CREOL student body, collaborating with student projects and outreach programs. Aug 1990 – Mar 1992. Master student under the supervision of Dr. Daniel Malacara at the “Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica” in León, Gto, Mexico. On this period I acquire extensive experience in digital image processing, C++ programming, and classical and modern interferometric techniques. Different groups have used the programs I developed to analyze images. I learned the basics of optical design and optical component fabrication. I was responsible of the student laboratory for a year, classifying and inventorying the equipment. I also participated in the outreach activities of the center as guide for visitors to the center. I was involved in the organization of a weekly student seminar to ventilate student research and introductory word processor courses to first year students. Oct 1988 - Jul 1990. Undergraduate student at the Applied Optics group of the R&D department of the Instruments Center, U.N.A.M. On this period I acquire experience in the basic requirements of an optics laboratory. I performed inventory of all the equipment, many of which was unclassified. Performed the installation and operation of two argon ion gas lasers and an optical table. I designed and developed a laser-fiber optic adapter for medical applications, characterizing also the laser damage over different materials. I also participated in the outreach program for guided tours at the CI-UNAM.
