Background: I hold a Bachelor and a Master’s degree in Physics by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) with a focus in optics and analytical sciences, and, I studied a diploma course in Art History. My academic interests span from the colour science to the material history of art and visual human experience as an evolving process. I am interested, as well, in the novel and unexplored capabilities to render and understanding colour and visual surface properties. I have experience in performing optics experiments, spectroscopy techniques and spectra processing. I have analyzed archaeological ceramics in the lab and have worked in ceramics fabrication processes, including paste and glaze palettes testing, casting and 3D printing in the environment of a design studio.
Aspirations within project: By this project, I expect to support the development of an efficient and rich visual language for the years to come. I want to be an active participant in the process of perfecting the flow of information from the physical world to the digital language, and the other way around. Thus, I aspire to learn and bring to practice all the necessary skills to become a specialist in the understanding and manipulation of appearance in 2.5 D and 3D surfaces.
My aim is being capable to handle a quantitative characterization of the visual properties by optical and imaging techniques, as well as the planning and performance of high quality printing processes. I am eager to exploit both, my background in the physical sciences and the approaching to visual features that I acquired while stepping in the fields of art and design. It has always been my aspiration to collaborate with all the people who are passionate on the same topics, and to be part of a real community that spans academy, industry and the visual arts. In consequence, I may expect to keep working within such international community and getting results after finishing my PhD studies.
