I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate with H. Vincent Poor at Princeton University and a Visiting Postdoctoral Researcher at NYU Wireless. I obtained my Ph.D. and M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University working with Dr. Behnaam Aazhang. As an undergraduate I majored in Engineering Physics (graduated with honors) at Tec de Monterrey and spent a year abroad at INSA Lyon‘s Telecommunication Department. My Ph.D. research was supported by a Rice ECE Fellowship, a Texas Instruments Fellowship, Huawei Technologies, and the NSF.
My research has been focused on finding the optimal operation of future wireless networks, along with creating and evaluating practical strategies fior their operation. In my mind, future networks should focus on service provisioning in a timely, secure, and efficient manner. My future research is aimed at engineering a networks that support next generation services with lower latency requirements, higher information throughput, and inherently secure computations over wireless networks.Beyond research, I am passionate about mentoring, helping those around me, and trying new things. At Princeton University, I am actively involved with URM recruiting and mentoring efforts (e.g., actively supporting SHPE and NSBE student chapter events, co-organized Princeton Pathways into Graduate School, hosted a "Go To Graduate School" seminar multiple times at many universities). At Rice University, I was part of the Rice Center for Engineering Leadership Graduate Committee, the SHPE Student Chapter, 1 of 3 co-organizers of the ECE Graduate Student Mentoring program, and worked on campus as a graduate housing residence assistant. As an undergrad I was president of the Physics Student Association. I’m fluent in English, Spanish, and French. To unwind, I like lifting heavy things at the gym (sum of bench press PR, dead lift PR and squat PR > 850lbs).
