I was recognized with a 2012 IBM Faculty Award to support my research on "Ambient Intelligence and Natural Interactions in the Mexican Classrooms". Since august 2014 I become an IEEE Senior Member.

I am co-founder of the IHCLab Research Group, which develops innovative ways of interaction between humans and computers.

I received a M.Eng. degree (with honors -Mérito Escolar-) in Computer Science at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California (UABC) and a Bachelor degree in Telematics engineering from the Universidad de Colima.

I spent a year at Create-Net research centre in Italy as an intern researcher, working in the Multimedia, Interaction and Smart Environments -MISE - Group (now Mobile and Ubiquitous Technologies -MUbiT-) doing research on Human-Computer Interaction applied to aware environments for assisted living technologies. I worked under the supervision of Dr. Oscar Mayora.
