Postdoctoral research fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division.

I studied my Ph.D. with Alejandra Medina-Rivera, the Regulatory Genomics and Bioinformatics Laboratory at International Laboratory for Human Genome Research (LIIGH) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Our goal was to integrate public microarray and RNA-seq data, together with samples manually curated of lung diseases, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Idiopatic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) for better characterization of gene expression signatures. We worked in colaboration with Julio Collado-Vides, Moises Selman and Yalbi I. Balderas-Martínez.
