About me

I obtained my Bachelor (2010) and Master in Science degrees (2012) in Chemistry at the University of Guanajuato, Mexico, both received with Cum Laude honors and under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Merino. In 2017, I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Chemistry with excellent Cum Laude honors at the Institut de Química Computacional i Catàlisi (IQCC) of the University of Girona (Spain) and under the guidance of Prof. Marcel Swart.

I continued my work as postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. J. Oscar C. Jiménez-Halla at the University of Guanajuato, Mexico (2018) and then joined the Hylleraas Centre for Quantum Molecular Sciences of the University of Oslo with a prestigious Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship funded by the European Union (2019-21).

In 2021, I received a prestigious Young Research Talent grant (8 MNOK) funded by the Research Council of Norway. Currently, I hold a Senior Researcher position at the Hylleraas Centre of the University of Oslo, Norway.

My research has been awarded in Mexico with a National Chemistry Prize by the Mexican Society of Thermodynamics and Center for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV) for the Best Master thesis in the area of Thermodynamics (2013). From early 2019, I hold the National Researcher Level 1 (SNI I) distinction granted by the National Council of Science and Technology of Mexico (CONACyT).
