I obtained a degree in Physics from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in 2002 under the supervision of Dr. Fernando Magana and a D.Phil (PhD) in Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Oxford in 2006 under the supervision of Dr. Michael Johnston in the area of terahertz spactroscopy. During 2007 I did a postdoc in the same group. In 2008 I was appointed research fellow at the materials department of the University of Oxford where I worked on characterisation of nanomaterials. Since January 2009 I joined the photonics department at Centro de Investigaciones en Optica (CIO) as a research professor. I am National Researcher level II and fellow of the Mexican Academy of Sciences. In addition I am Associate Editor of Journal of Infrared Millimeter and Terahertz Waves. I chaired the THz Sensing committee of the OSA Advanced Photonics Congress 2013 and 2015 and have been part of the International Program Committees of Optical Terahertz Science and Technology (OTST) 2011, OSA Sensors topical meeting 2012 and 2014, and PHOTOOPTICS 2014, 2015 and 2016. I am also a member of the International Organizing Committee for the International Conference of Infrared Millimeter and Terahertz Waves, and will be chairing the Local Organizing Committee for the 42 edition of this conference held in Cancun, Mexico in 2017.

My research interests include the applications and developement of terahertz spectroscopy techniques with particular emphasis on the study of ultrafast charge transport in semiconductors, spin injection in semiconductors, surface and interface non-linear optics as well as low frequency vibrations of biomolecular systems. I am also focusing on exploring uses of THz radiation in other disciplines such as biology, astronomy, conservation of objects with cultural value, medicine and industry.

I teach the Electromagnetism, Optoelectronics and Photonics courses as well as the Ultrafast Optics option as part of our graduate programmes.
