I am an interdisciplinary researcher who values creativity, innovation and dedication.
I am a Physics Engineer from ITESM, back in my home country Mexico. I diversified my training by doing a Master in Science in Bioengineering at EPFL in Switzerland. A driver in my professional path has been my interest in developing Microfluidic Technologies that enables the study of small biological entities and phenomena, in a novel, accurate and relevant manner.
I am a Doctor in Science from ETH Zurich. In my doctoral thesis I studied the heterogeneity in the dynamics of heat shock response, using as a model organism the nematode C. elegans. This project was powered by microfluidic platforms and mathematical modelling.
My fondness for Quantitative Biology approaches brought me to do a Postdoc in the Physical Microfluidics and Bioengineering Unit at Institut Pasteur. In my first project I led the characterization of Double-Strand Break Repair, at single-cell resolution, using S. cerevisiae as a model organism. To do this, I was granted the INCEPTION PostDoc Funding 2020 for Interdisciplinary Projects. Then, I joined a project aiming to characterize the use of droplet microfluidics towards the derivation of Organoids-on-Chip from Pluripotent Stem Cells.
Currently, I am a Biophysics Project Manager in LVMH Research, still collaborating with the Physical Microfluidics and Bioengineering Unit, towards the development of new in vitro skin models.
