I was born and raised in Guadalajara, Mexico where I earned my bachelor’s degree at the Western Institute of Technology and Higher Education (ITESO). Subsequently, I went on to pursue two master’s degrees in the Netherlands, including a Research MSc in Behavioural and Cognitive Neuroscience at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. More recently, I completed my DPhil at the University of Oxford in the Oxford Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence. I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Brain & Behaviour Research Group led by Prof. Mark Buckley in the University of Oxford and a Stipendiary Lecturer in Queen’s college.
I teach part of the first year ‘Introduction to Psychology’ course to Queen’s Experimental Psychology (EP), Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics (PPL), and Biomedical Science (BMS) students, particularly the Psychobiology and Cognition modules. I also provide tutorials to 2nd year students for their course in ‘Behavioural Neuroscience’. For final year students I provide a couple of lectures and tutorials for the Advanced Option entitled ‘Systems Neuroscience’. Additionally, I give a lecture on Learning and Memory for MSc in Neuroscience students for their A1 module.
I am currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Brain & Behaviour Research Group where I investigate the neural activity that underlies and supports complex cognitive and neuropsychological processes like learning, memory and cognition.
