About

My research focuses on experimental and numerical modelling of natural ventilation, hygrothermal comfort, heat and mass transfer in buildings. I am a postdoctoral researcher fellow sponsored by the Fund for Energy Sustainability of the Secretariat of Energy and the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACyT). I am also Visiting Professor in the Postgraduate and Research Section (SEPI) of the Superior School of Architecture and Engineering (ESIA) of the Polytechnique National Institute (IPN). I am working on Bioclimatic Design and Building Wind Engineering.
