BSc. Biochemistry Engineering at Faculty of Biological Sciences, Autonomous University of Coahuila, August 2015 – September 2020.
Dissertation Title: “Proteomic Analyses of hydrolytic enzymes in biodigesters fed with agro-industrial residues”.
MSc. Biotechnology at West Virginia University, Department of Biology, August 2021 – July 2023
Dissertation Title: “Exploration into natural variation for various metabolite compounds related to important organoleptic characteristics in the horticultural group Capsicum chinense via wide-genome associations”.
During my bachelor’s degree I collaborated in a laboratory of bioremediation that specializes on how microbiomes play an important role in the ecosystem. My thesis project was on proteomics bioprospecting of anaerobic digesters. We focused on the evaluation of hydrolytic enzymes participating in the degradation of lignocellulosic residues. I have recently completed my masters working on plant genomics, identifying genes underlying metabolic pathways that are related to plant quality traits evaluating the single nucleotide polymorphisms regarding their allelic effect of transcription factor encoding genes. My interests for my PhD are to understand the types of hydrocarbons being produced by microalgae and identifying microbes responsible for degrading them.
