Brief personal description

As a vision science researcher, I am constantly captivated by the complexities of the human visual system. With a background in physics and a PhD in Optics, my research journey has been multifaceted, ranging from the study of meteorites to the examination of coral reefs, and ultimately to the exploration of the mysteries of vision science. Born and raised in Mexico, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and findings with a wider audience, which is why I created this personal blog. When I am not in the lab, I can be found sipping a specialty coffee and indulging in a good book, always seeking new inspiration and knowledge.
