About me

I received my Bachelor's of Chemical Engineering from the Universidad de Guanajuato in 2004.

My Master in Control Engineering was completed at CINVESTAV in 2008.

I have been working as a PhD student at the Hamilton Institute, under the supervision of Prof. Richard H. Middleton.

Research Interests

Optimal Control, Switched Systems, HIV Mitigation, Chemical Networks, Process Control
