Ph.D. (2010) and M.Sc. (2005) degrees in Material Science from CINVESTAV-IPN, Querétaro, México.
B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineer from Instituto Tecnológico de Querétaro, México (2003).
B.Sc. Course (January-April 2011): Metrology and Computer-aided Design at the Universidad Tecnológica de Querétaro, México.
Research stay at the UCSB Department of Mechanical Engineeering, USA, in the group of Dr. Carlos G. Levi (May-October 2008).
Main research interests
Research on mechanics of materials, using computational simulations to understanding the structure and its evolution during mechanical testing, with emphasis on the transition from elastic to the plastic behavior. Recent focus has been on ferroelastic phenomena due to its toughening mechanism effects, leading to the zirconia ceramics for the application of high temperature materials composed of ceramics, actuating as a protection of structures from thermal barrier coatings for gas turbine blades.
