I studied Biochemical Engineering at ITESM-Campus Guaymas from 1990-1995. From 1996-2000, I did my Master and PhD degrees at the University of Arizona at the Dept. of Soil, Water and Environmental Science. In 2001 I began to work at the Research Center for Nutrition and Development (CIAD) in Guaymas, Sonora, México, where I currently work as a researcher and graduate professor. My primary line of research is in Environmental Sciences with focus in wildlife ecotoxicology.
