I'm a Mexican engineer/astronomer currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Anton Pannekoek Institute at the University of Amsterdam. I mainly work on multiwavelength observations of accreting compact objects, focusing on ultraviolet, optical and infrared. Currently, I'm working in Nathalie Degenaar's group on Compact Objects in a Low-level Accretion regime (COLA for short!). Although I work as a full-time astronomer nowadays, I have a background on mechanical engineering ad math/physics teacher at high-school level.
In 2016, I was awarded the Carlos Fuentes Award for the most distinguished Mexican student in the United Kingdom for my work during my PhD and the start-up of a new instrument OptiCAM for the Mexican National Observatory. Here are some links to some nice newspaper articles about this :).
