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. In 2018, I obtained a postdoctoral position in the research group of Prof. J. Oscar C. Jiménez-Halla at the University of Guanajuato, Mexico. Currently, I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow and the elected representative of the Young Researchers Parliament at the Hylleraas Centre for Quantum Molecular Sciences of the University of Oslo, Norway.
My research was 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). Right after I finished my Ph.D. studies, I was awarded a prestigious Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship funded by the European Union to join the Hylleraas Centre of the University of Oslo, Norway. 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).
