I did my first degree in Physics at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), in the Facultad de Ciencias. To graduate from that University I worked for about a year preparing a thesis in the Instituto de Astronomía . This work involved the analysis of the interaction between a stellar wind and an Ülrich accretion flow. My first degree dissertation in Spanish is here in various different formats.

My postgraduate studies were made in the University of Cambridge, being always a member of Churchill College.

As graduate student I did the Certificate of Advanced Study in Mathematics -best known as Part III of the Mathematical Tripos- in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) which is part of The University of Cambridge.

I did a PhD in Astrophysics in the Astrophysics Group which is part of the Physics Department -best known as The Cavendish Laboratory- in The University of Cambridge. This work involved the analysis of the interaction of the jets of radio sources with its surroundings. You can download my PhD dissertation in various formats here.

In 2001 I started working as a research Astronomer at the Instituto de Astronomía (IAUNAM) which is part of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) . I still hold that post.

Precise information on my past and present work can be found in the following:

I have a separate webpage for my present and past research students.
