My research area is algebraic topology. I am interested in homotopical group theory, H-spaces, classifying spaces of groups and generalizations, topological K-theory and equivariant homotopy invariants of spaces with group actions. For more details, click on the publications tab.


I organize the Algebraic Topology seminar at CIMAT Mérida. Contact me if you would like to participate.


I am a member of the Mexican Mathematical Society and an affiliate member of the American Mathematical Society.


I am organizing, together with Antonio Díaz and Kevin Piterman, the special session Groups and Topology of the II Joint meeting RSME-UMA that will take place from December 12th to 16th, 2022 in Ronda, Spain, the dreamed city.
