I did a B.Sc. degree in Earth Sciences in the Faculty of Sciences of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I worked with the granulitic Grenvillian Oaxacan Complex, understanding the petrogenetic processes and calculating the temperatures conditions of the metamorphic peak. Then I completed a M.Sc. degree in Earth Sciences in the Institute of Geology of UNAM, for my thesis project I worked with granulitic xenoliths from southern Mexico to understand their origin and metamorphism using petrographic, geochronologic, geochemistry, isotope geochemistry (bulk rock and minerals) techniques.

For  my PhD project I am currently working with low-medium grade Archean rocks of the Isua Supracrustal Belt, Greenland, to understand the metamorphic history (P-T-t-X-fluid) of the terrane and the implication of this history in the Archean geodynamics and the preservation of the early life record.
