I studied for my bachelor's degree at the
Universidad Autónoma de Baja California
(UABC) from 2001 until 2007. Yeah, it's a really long time, but during that time I was part of the Programa de Ingenieros en Francia
interchange program for two years (2004-2005 and 2006-2007), under which I studied at a top french engineering school, namely
INPG ENSIMAG. This was simply an amazing experience that changed what I
wanted in life.
INPG students in their last year can choose to go the research route and get both a master's degree and an engineering degree,
at the cost of having to take about 30% more ECTS credits. So I said to myself "gee, self, that looks pretty cool", and
signed up at the Université Joseph Fourier's
So, in September 2007 I concluded my studies for my Mexican bachelor's degree, my French engineering degree,
and my French master's degree.
After all of that, I landed into a really cool and demanding doctorate program that allows you to work for a company while
doing your doctorate. It's what some call an industrial doctorate, and is known in France as a CIFRE. I worked for
for about three and a half years, and later went on to finish my doctorate with the
University of Grenoble, specifically in the
Adèle research team.
