Education:

  • PhD, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona (2021- Present)
  • MSc, Mathematical modeling, Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (2019-2021).
  • BSc, Biophysics, Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (2015-2019)

Research Interests: 

I am interested in studying the structure and properties of the genotype-phenotype mapping of living organisms and how these properties shape the outcomes of evolutionary processes. Such properties include robustness, modularity and plasticity. Currently, I'm working on understanding how the constant appearance of mutations affect populations over time and whether epistasis patterns, compatible with empirical data, can decrease the degradation of individuals in a population and thus decrease their extinction risk
