Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering (2019), University of California, Berkeley.
B.S. (2008), and M.S. (2010) in Mechatronics Engineering, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico City.
I am a proud and cheerful alumnus of Colegio Madrid A.C.
I was a global partner in ME310 Global: New Product Design Innovation at Stanford University 2007-2008; where as part of a multidisciplinary team of students from Stanford, UNAM, and the Helsinki University of Technology, I contributed to redesign the center stack of a vehicle for General Motors Company.
From 2010 to 2013 I was instructor of Electromechanical Systems in the Mechatronics Department of the School of Engineering, and a research assistant in the Graduate School of Engineering, both at UNAM. During this period I participated in industry-sponsored projects. These projects included the design of a BLDC driven household solar refrigerator, design and development of an integrated RFID livestock tracking system, validation of a testbed to measure the centrifugal force of hydraulic balancers for automatic washing machines, vibration risk assessment of feather art, and the design of a control system for an industrial food sterilizer based on the measurement of heath flux.
In 2012 I joined the engineering team of the startup Automatische Technik México that developed the first commercially available Mexican industrial delta robot for pick-and-place operations.
I served as Editor and President of the Biomedical Engineering Student Chapter IEEE-UNAM from 2006 to 2008, and as President of the Mexican Association of Students at Berkeley (MEXASB) for the term 2016-2017.
I performed my doctoral research at the Berkeley Center for Control & Identification, advised by Andrew Packard, and Murat Arcak in the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of California, Berkeley. This was done with the support of CONACYT, Fulbright-Garcia Robles, and UC-MEXUS scholarships. My dissertation is on trajectory planning and robust control algorithms for the sit-to-stand movement of powered lower limb orthoses used in human rehabilitation.
As a controls system engineer in the Applied Research and Concept Development Department at Bose Corporation I had the opportunity to apply optimization techniques in the design, and implementation of controllers for conducting Active Noise Reduction in headphones, from 2019 to 2020.
My research interests include optimal control, robotics, product design, acoustics, machine learning, validation and uncertainty quantification, dynamic programming, and development engineering.
