Short Biography

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I pursued my academic journey in the field of Chemistry at the Faculty of Chemistry at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I completed both my BSc and MSc degrees there, with a focus on the study of the electronic structure of twisted bilayer graphene and its interaction with light, as well as electronic transport in bismuth, which has recently been classified as a higher-order topological insulator.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Condensed Matter Interfaces group at Utrecht University, under the supervision of dr. Zeila Zanolli and prof. Cristiane de Morais Smith. In my doctoral research, I plan to study the first principles of the proximity interaction between a topological insulator and a superconductor.
