I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at NYU Wireless, and a Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher with H. Vincent Poor at Princeton University. I obtained my PhD and M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University working with Dr. Behnaam Aazhang. My B.S. was in Engineering Physics (with honors) from Tec de Monterrey, and I spent a year abroad at INSA Lyon‘s Telecommunication Department.. My PhD research was supported by a Rice ECE Fellowship, a Texas Instruments Fellowship, Huawei Technologies, and the NSF.
My research has been focused on finding the optimal operation of diverse wireless networks, then creating and evaluating practical strategies. In my mind, future networks should not simply strive to just offer higher data rates, but rather focus on providing services efficiently and effectively.
Beyond research, I am passionate about mentoring, helping those around me, and trying new things. At Rice University, I was actively involved with the Rice Center for Engineering Leadership Graduate Committee, the SHPE Student Chapter, co-organized an ECE Graduate Student Mentoring program, and worked on campus as a graduate housing residence assistant. As an undergrad I was president of the Physics Student Association. I’m fluent in English, Spanish, and French. To unwind, I like lifting heavy things at the gym (Sum of bench press PR, dead lift PR and squat PR > 850lbs).
