|I am an MD/MSc with a strong background in human biology and neuroscience. I was also fortunate to have many international, full-time research experiences in US, Quebec, and Germany in which I learned the molecular biology techniques and the fundamentals of signal and image processing. I started learning programming since high school, using Matlab since my research internship in 2014, bash and R since the MSc, and Python during my free time after the MSc. During the last year, I have taken the two Neuromatch Academy courses on Computational Neurosciences and Deep Learning in which I learned about the topics and refined my Python skills. In the last months I have also refreshed in depth how to use Git and Github. Throughout my life, I have acquired and improved my written and verbal English communication skills to a C1 level.
I am currently a researcher taking a leave (i.e. I can work full-time on the proposal) in Lausanne, Switzerland at UNIL/CHUV. I have been interested for a long time in sustainable development goals (SDGs) and I am looking forward to help design a project or help writing the proposal of and executing an already conceived project intending to advance the achievement of SDG 6. I can contribute with my medical knowledge and my programming, data / signal analysis and molecular biology skills to the proposal and, if hopefully funded, to write code or run experiments for the execution of the project.|
|I am reading actively all the documents from the current call (I am very detail-oriented and careful not to miss anything when submitting applications). I am currently learning about all sort of topics concerning SDG 6, and reviewing everything I have covered during my curriculum related to healthy water consumption. In the same manner, I am learning how the scientific methods I have learned can be applied into projects that help solving the problems of the call. I am looking forward to collaborating with you.|
|I have worked in many laboratories of Mexico, US, Canada, Germany and Switzerland. Therefore I am very connected with the scientific community in several universities or research institutes. To mention some of them: Columbia University Medical Center in New York, Houston Medical Center, University of Montreal, Technical University of Munich, Tecnologico de Monterrey, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM).|
