Academic history

He was born on September 19, 1973 in Acatzingo, Puebla. Mexico.
His studies in Computer Science were made, first, at the “Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla” (BUAP) and then he got a Master degree in Computer Sciences in the “Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada” (CICESE) in Baja California.

From 1999 to 2001 he was teacher in the Faculty of Sciences and in the Faculty of Engineering of the “Universidad Autónoma de Baja California”.

It was in 2002 when he had the opportunity to enter the Computational Genomics Program (PGC) of the former Center for Research in Nitrogen Fixation, now the Center for Genomic Sciences. Initially, his activities focused on planning. Sometimes they have focused on supervision and most of the time on the administration of information technologies and technical support.

He has been a fundamental part in the consolidation of the computational infrastructure, both of the Center for Genomic Sciences and the Undergraduate Program in Genomic Sciences. His interest in parallel computing and high performance has led him to propose and implement alternatives that have served to meet the computational needs of the CCG. This same interest has led him to participate in international schools on “High Performance Clusters” and “GRID Computing” and has also allowed him to collaborate with other entities for the construction of an inter-institutional GRID.

He is responsible for the coordination and logistics of videoconferences in the CCG, as well as the administration of high-performance computers and training of new users.

Since the beginning of the Undergraduate Program in Genomic Sciences and since 2015, in the PhD Program in Biomedical Sciences, he has participated as a teacher of the course “Introduction to Unix with application to Bioinformatics”.

From 2010 to date, he is the Administrator of the National Node of Bioinformatics (EMBnet Mexico) and has coordinated the activities of the International Workshops on Bioinformatics (IWB) organized at the Center for Genomics Sciences.
