I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology with a focus on clinical psychology from the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (2002), a Master's degree in Educational Sciences with a specialization in curriculum design and psychopedagogy from the Universidad de Monterrey (2005), another Master of Arts degree in Foreign Languages and Cultures, with a concentration in Hispanic Literature and Culture from Washington State University (2011), and a Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies with a concentration in Visual and Cultural Studies and a Digital Humanities Graduate Certificate from Texas A&M University (2022). These degrees enabled me to gain a diverse range of professional experiences. I worked as a practitioner psychologist in the past and worked as an instructor in higher education and graduate studies both in Mexico and the United States. In addition to my academic pursuits, I have created several online courses covering topics on Psychology, Education, Spanish as a second language, and Text Analysis. As a doctoral student, I worked as a research assistant at the Initiative of Digital Humanities, Media, and Culture, now known as the Center of Digital Humanities Research (CoDHR) at Texas A&M University. While there, I contributed to two projects: the creation of an image gallery (digital archive) for the Cervantes Project, and the development of a web platform for ASECS (American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies). I also independently collaborated on digital projects such as 18thConnect, Torn Apart/Separados (Allies section),  Humanizando la Deportación, and United Fronteras.

I am currently the Co-founder and Executive Director of Redes, migrantes sin fronteras, which is a non-profit digital initiative that connects pro-immigrant associations, shelters, and other social, cultural, artistic, and activist programs and initiatives in Mexico by listing and mapping them. Additionally, I work as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Humanities and Education at Tecnológico de Monterrey. In this institution, I am involved in various projects related to Digital Public Humanities, Digital Rhetoric, Migration, and Social Justice as a part of the Digital Humanities Research Group.

My research interests are broad and interdisciplinary. I use quantitative methods from the field of Digital Humanities to analyze the rhetoric surrounding return migration to Mexico. Specifically, I employ text and social media data mining to gather insights. Additionally, I am passionate about designing, developing, and preserving digital archives and public memory studies. I have presented and published papers on these topics at various academic conferences and journals, across Mexico, the United States, and Canada.
