My professional degree is in Educational Sciences Specialized in Chemistry and Biology. I have a Master in Science and Food Technology. Both, my undergraduate and master degrees were obtained in the Autonomous University of Tamaulipas. During my master degree, I studied the biotechnological production of the the enzime microbial transglutaminasa, aiming to optimize the operational condition for the production, in culture media made using sugar cane molasses and glycerol as carbon sources. Afterwards I obtained the Phylosophy doctor degree in Chemical Engineering by the University of Vigo. During the doctorate, I studied the lactic acid and biosurfactant production using culture media made with grape marc from wine industry. Nowadays, my research interests are focused to the development of strategies for the revalorization of raw materias, byproducts and residues from the agroalimentary sector, aiming hte production of value added products, by biotechnological tools
