Born and raised in Ciudad Juárez, México. I hold a medical degree from the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juarez (UACJ). After working on the clinical side of medicine and as a professor for Medical Physiology, Human Physiology and Patient Management courses, I decided to expand my research skills, finishing a M.Sc. Degree in Genomics at the UACJ.
For my Master’s thesis, I directed a project in the characterization of an ion channel in a heterologous expression system where I developed expertise with neural cell culture and whole-cell patch-clamp techniques. I am interested in Health Sciences, Computational Neuroscience, and Electrophysiology. I'm currently working on my PhD in the Serrano lab at New Mexico State University.
