    PhD Candidate at Kyushu Institute of Technology, Japan

    My professional training is focused on the AOCS engineering, C programming, mechatronics, inertial navigation systems for small satellites, and mission analysis.


    Master of Electrical Engineering - Instrumentation. [2008-2011] National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Mexico (Graduated with Honors). 6 months research stay at Institute of Space Systems (IRS), Stuttgart University, Germany.

    Bachelor of Mechatronics Engineering. [2003-2008] Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México UNAM México.

    Professional Experience

    - Researcher, Aerospace Development Center CDA at National Polytechnic Institute IPN, Mexico [2013 - 2015]. I perform research related with attitude determination and control systems for small satellites (ADCS), particularly in algorithms design, space environment modeling and simulation. I also participate in the coordination of development stages of projects that are on the agenda of the CDA.

    - Information and Statistics Specialist, AXA Insurance, Mexico [April 2011 – July 2013]. I designed and implemented forecast techniques and performed statistical analysis aimed to the estimation of sales and profitability parameters. I evauated proposals of compensation schemes though sales and profitability forecast and simulation. 

    - Lecturer in Engineering Faculty, UNAM. [August 2012 – December 2012]. I taught Differential Calculus to 45 students in their 1st Semester.

    - Lecturer in Engineering Faculty, UNAM. [February 2011 – June 2011]. I taught Lineal Electronic Systems to 6 students in their 9th Semester, which content is related with applications of the Operational Amplifier, such as comparators, triggers, n-order analog filters and controllers.

    Participation in the nanosatellite project HumSat-Mexico, II-UNAM and CIVESTAV, Mexico [2008 - 2010]. My main contribution was the design of a preliminary Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS) for this nanosatellite and the development of a flight simulator programmed in Matlab.
