I am an associate professor at UNAM (since 2014), previously at INCICH. I obtained my Ph.D. In 2005 at UNAM working with photosynthetic bacteria.
I made two postdoctoral stays, first at Texas A&M University with Thomas K. Wood (bacterial biofilms) and then at the VU Amsterdam with Hans Westerhoff (E. coli systems biology). Currently I study of the resistance of P. aeruginosa against new antimicrobials, the role of QS in stress tolerance, and drug repurposing for finding antimicrobial activities in drugs currently used for other clinical purposes.
I am the author of 39 publications (15 as corresponding author), and have 2 master and 2 Ph.D. students at my charge as well as several interchange students from Japan and Colombia.
