I am a scientific fellow volunteer at SoundBio Lab and belong to the SoundBio iGEM advisors' team. I hold a BSc in Food Chemistry from UNAM, Mexico, a MSc in Clinical Microbiology from the University of Nottingham, UK and a PhD in bacterial genetics from the University of Birmingham, UK. I worked as a research scientist in different NHS Reference Laboratories in the UK and completed the NHS Scientist Training Programme in Clinical Microbiology in Bristol, England.
When not volunteering in SoundBio Lab and advising its iGEM team, I volunteer in different community organisations tackling public health issues in Seattle. I also enjoy spending time with my family and building Playmobil and Lego cities with my little Son.
