I am a research fellow working on AGN reverberation mapping at the University of St Andrews, UK. My research topic involves the multi-wavelength (mostly UV, optical and infrared) study of accreting compact objects, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes and more recently of super-massive black holes. I'm also interested in transient astronomy and instrumentation, bieng part of the science team behind OPTICam.
I was undergraduate at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in Mechanical Engineering. Afterwards, I did my M.Sc. at the Institute of Astronomy at UNAM where I worked in cataclysmic variables, globular cluster and stellar winds of high mass stars. I finished my PhD at the University of Southampton on multiwavelength observations of accreting compact objects and worked in the X-ray binary group at the Anton Pannekoek Institute, University of Amsterdam.
