I was born in the beautiful city of Oaxaca, México (World heritage site since 1987). I studied Mechatronics Engineering at the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN, México); where I began to work in robotics and computer vision under the guidance of Dr. Emmanuel Dean.
I hold a Master in Science degree in Computer Science from the Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE Research Center, México). I developed my master thesis at the Evovision Group working on the aplication of geometric theorems to close-range photogrammetry and 3D computer vision problems.
Motivated by a novel mathematical framework, called Geometric algebra, I enrolled at the Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politécnico Nacional (Cinvestav, México), from where I received the Doctor in Science degree (equivalent to Ph.D.) in Electrical Engineering with the thesis entitled Geometric methods of perceptual organization for computer vision.
I have lectured for more than 5 years at different universities across Mexico, and worked as independent software developer of computer vision applications. At 2019, I received the Mexican National System of Researchers distinction (CONACYT-SNI), and since 2021 I'm a postdoctoral fellow at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM, México).
I am co-founder and director of the Instituto de Cómputo Aplicado en Ciencias (ICOAC).
