The focus of my work has been on nonuniform networks, their models and algorithmic implications. I am particularly interested in adaptive and multi-agent systems, structural properties, and complexity in general.
From August 2013 to July 2014 I was visiting HIIT in Helsinki, Finland, during my first sabattical leave. In 2008–2010, I was the area coordinator for Information Technology and Software Engineering (IT & Software) at CIIDIT of the PIIT. In 2003–2006, I was a member of the Computational Models and Mechanics research group, a subdivision of the Computational Complexity and Combinatorics (CCC) research group at the Laboratory for Theoretical Computer Science at Helsinki University of Technology (TKK).
I list here those research projects where I am the principal researcher and hence responsible for the project. The amounts are in Mexican pesos and the proposals and final reports are in Spanish.

During my doctoral studies, I was a student in HeCSE (Helsinki Graduate School in Computer Science and Engineering). After a brief period of HeCSE funding, I began to work for the STADYCS project supervised by Prof. Pekka Orponen. My Licentiate's thesis was finished in April 2003 in the STADYCS project and also published as a research report (available below).
After the end of the STADYCS funding period, we received funding for a new project, also from the Academy of Finland, for the years 2004-2006. In that project, called Algorithms for Nonuniform Networks (ANNE), I completed my doctoral thesis (available below).
For the academic year 2005, I was granted the Rotary Foundation's Ambassadorial Scholarship for studying in the University of Chile from 28th of February to the 16th of December 2005. I kept a photo journal on the visit.
In 2004, I also received the Nokia Foundations scholarship.
My post-graduate/doctoral studies were on Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematics, although for the Master's degree I majored in Software Engineering with a Usability Research minor. Outside my degree studies I've been putting a lot of effort into Applied Mathematics and Operations Research. A transcript of my course records at TKK — available in PDF — should help determine what exactly have I been studying over the years.
