I am a PhD student at the Graduate Program in Astrophysics UNAM, Mexico. My PhD project is about Short Gamma-Ray Bursts (SGRBs) which also know as electromagnetic counterparts of neutron star mergers. My research interests are focused on numerical simulations of relativistic hydrodynamics applied to GRBs and their radiation. My supervisor is Dr. Fabio De Colle in the Department of Plasma Physics, Nuclear Science Institute, UNAM, Mexico.

I love science! Eventually, I hear some talks of other research areas by a simple curiosity pleasure. I like the statistical models and documentaries of wild animals. My strange favorite theory of physics is loop quantum gravity. I love the sun because it contains every law of physics. I like the raccoons and obsessively the Snoopy beagle.

In my free times I play the guitar and prove electric effects in synthesizer emulators, also I try to write short histories (somethings here) and compose my proper songs. My favorite rock bands are Interpol (NY) and the representative indie rock between 2002-2007 (The Strokes, The rapture, ) ... also I like classic rock like Deep Purple and Pink Floyd.

My favorite writers are latin-american: Rafael Bernal (MEX, dark humor), Jorge Luis Borges (ARG), Jorge Ibargüengoitia (MEX), Juan Rulfo (MEX) and Gabriel García Marquéz (COL). For classical music I prefer baroque era like Bach and Händel.

I drink a lot of coffee and I love much to eat!, in Mexico, our gastronomy is fantastic, however I think that is interesting to known new eats.

When I am traveling, I see the throw the window all time
