Background

Before I joined the faculty at the Department of Musicology in January 2017, I completed my PhD research in  hand movement analysis at the University of Sheffield, UK. I was Graduate Teaching Assistant and Facilitator for Mechanical Engineering courses at undergraduate and master levels at the University of Sheffield.  I also held a consulting intern position at Sheffield City Council's Life Long Learning Skills & Communities in a project aimed at improving employability conditions of people with learning disabilities. During my research on hand and finger movement I was involved with the Centre for Assistive Technology and Connected Healthcare (CATCH) and the Insigneo Institute for in silico medicine at the University of Sheffield. Some of my hand movement research has been published in the International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation and the Journal of Hand Therapy, and I had the opportunity to present my research at the International Congress of Biomechanics, 2015. I got a Mechatronics Engineering degree and Mechanical  Engineering Master's from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). 

My current research project is titled MICRO (Human Bodily Micromotion in Music Perception and Interaction), which aims to understand how music influences what we may call micromotion, the small magnitude motion observed when people try to stand still. Additionally, this research is aimed at using micromotion to control musical sound in computer-based systems.
