About

I'm a mexican astrophysicist. I graduated as a Physicist from the Autonomous National University of Mexico (UNAM) on 2006 with a thesis in the Quantum Mechanics field directed by Professor Adrián Reyes Cervantes. Then I enrolled in the graduate program of Master in Sciences (Astronomy) also in UNAM and graduated on 2009 with a thesis in the observational dynamics of galaxies field directed by professors Octavio Valenzuela Tijerino and Héctor Hernández Toledo. After being awarded by a Marie Curie grant I moved to Rome, Italy to do my PhD in Astrophysics at La Sapienza University working for the Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma with Professor Roberto Maiolino in an observational thesis about high redshift quasars and its relation with its host galaxies, which is in its final stages. The project of my PhD is developed under the european research network ELIXIR that has the objective of training young researchers to be able to exploit the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) when ready.
