Background: I was born in Tayoltita, Durango, Mexico, a small town surrounded by beautiful mountains. I moved to Guanajuato City, one of the most romantic places in Mexico, where I did my Ph.D. with Prof. Mario Pedraza-Reyes at the Universidad de Guanajuato. My thesis work focused on how Bacillus subtilis deploys distinct DNA repair mechanisms to deal with the genetic lesions that impair the sporulation program.
My current work: I joined the Rudner Lab in July 2015 and one of my interests is to study the B. subtilis envelope assembly. I am currently a CONACyT fellow.
