I studied Biochemical Engineering (2000-2005) at the Technological Institute of Celaya, the Master of Science (2007-2009) and Ph.D. degree (2009-2014) in Molecular Biology at The Institute for Scientific and Technological Research of San Luis Potosi.
My research is focused on the study of the molecular basis involved in defense response to plant pathogens. In addition, I am interested in the identification of microorganisms that act as biocontrol agents against phytopathogens.
Likewise, in recent years I have been studying the regulation of plant translation by upstream open reading frames (uORFs). In particular, findings obtained with this research could contribute to develop novel ways of manipulating gene expression for use in biotechnology. I have contributed to society through human resources training, as well as the generation of knowledge for the implementation of strategies for the control of plant disease.
