I received my BSc on ECE in 2009 and MSc on Computer Graphics in 2012 at the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Campus Guadalajara, Mexico. Since May 2013, I have been a PhD student of Biomedical Engineering at the Biomedical Signal and Image Computing Laboratory (BiSICL) in the University of British Columbia (UBC)I worked in collaboration with the Qatar Robotic Surgery Centre in Doha, Qatar as part of the Image Guided Robotic Surgery (IGRS) team. Previously, I was involved in human-robot interaction and biopotential acquisition/analysis projects within the biomechatronics lab.  

I have also participated in the Microsoft's Imagine Cup 2009 in Cairo, Egypt in the Embedded software development category, achieving 4th place.
