Academic and cultural exchanger
In 2016, I was awarded the STEM Regional Fulbright-García Robles Scholarship for Mexican students. Granted by The Mexico-United States Commission for the Academic and Cultural Exchange (COMEXUS), the scholarship aims the mutual agreement between the US and Mexico through academic training and scientific research on priority areas concerning both countries: energy, food security, environmental protection, and public health, among others. Regarding this context, I have decided to pursue a doctoral degree in Chemical Engineering and to join a research group, namely Dr. Heather Hunt's, at the University of Missouri. My research seeks standing out by its combined biochemistry, biotechnology, food science and chemical engineering approach to the solution of top priority bilateral issues.
