Degree in Earth Sciences from the UNAM’s Faculty of Sciences; Master’s in Science from the Institute of Geology, UNAM, and PhD from the University of Bristol. He is a full-time lecturer in Geochemistry at the National School of Higher Studies, Juriquilla, UNAM (ENES-J). He teaches courses on Geochemistry, Igneous Petrology, Optical Mineralogy and Experimental Techniques. In addition, he has created short, inter-semester courses for academia and industry focusing on the application of scientific thinking in professional areas. He is co-responsible for the ENES-J research and teaching laboratories and is in charge of the collection of earth materials at that institution. His main scientific interest is the study of the nature of the sub-arc mantle and its implications in subduction zones using petrographic, geochemical and experimental petrology tools. He has participated in four PAPIIT and PAPIME projects. This second group of projects has been the basis for implementing an innovative, data-focused, active learning technique known as the Inverted Classroom. He works with transdisciplinary groups, one focused on the energy transition and another on the origin of the oldest rocks in Mexico. In the last five years he has published as author or co-author two articles, one book and three summaries of lectures at international conferences.
