I am a graduate student at the Department of Computer Science. Under the guidance of my advisor Kavita Bala I pursue my research interests in high quality rendering and how to bring it closer to interactivity using the latest hardware advancements. I obtained my B.S. in Computer Science with highest honors from the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Estado de México at my hometown of Mexico City.
