I completed an Honours BSc in Biology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I have been interested in viruses since high school, and pursued that interest through my academic life. I completed my MSc at the Center of Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV) by studying the viral content in exosomes derived from dengue virus infected cells. Now, I am starting my second year as a PhD student at Queen's University and I focus on the roles of cyclophilins in regulating PKR and stress granule formation in the context of hepatitis C virus and coronavirus infection.
