I’m a member of the National System of Researchers of the National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt, Mexico). I did my PhD in Maths at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia, under the supervision of Reinout Quispel, Peter van der Kamp and Tim Garoni. My thesis, entitled From Discrete Integrable Systems to Cellular Automata, was on the subjects of Discrete Integrable Systems and on Cellular Automata Models of Traffic Flow. I had an opportunity to visit the Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences at Cambridge, UK, for a special program on Discrete Integrable Systems and an Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) Industry Internship Analysis of Traffic Flow in Urban Road Networks. In my PhD tree Albert Einstein is my sixth level grandfather. My Erdös number is 4. My profile according to Google Scholar page, Research Gate and ORCID. You can also visit my official webpage at Universidad Panamericana.
My research focuses mainly on applications of maths and stats to problems in different areas like finance, marketing, negotiation, supply chain management, civil engineering and behavioral economics. I usually see these problems as complex adaptive systems. The main tools I use are: nonlinear time series, partial least squares path modeling and statistical learning.
