Curriculum Vitae

Education

PhD Student at the University of Warwick

I'm currently working towards my PhD in the Department of Physics. I am part of the Ultrasonics Group studying high temperature ultrasonic transduction.

Masters Student at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)

I received an MENg in Electronic Systems (Honours) from the UNAM.  My project involved implementing a trigger circuit for a low energy solid-state laser.

Undergraduate Student at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM)

I received a BSc in Electronic Engineering from the UNAM. My project involved the construction of an instrument for velocity measurements in fluids based on laser diodes
