I am currently a full-time professor at the University of Monterrey for the School of Art and Design, for the Graphic Design program, hosted at the CRGS Roberto Garza Sada Center of Art, Architecture and Design, where I have the opportunity to share my knowledge but also to learn from the new generations of graphic designers devoted to the transformation of our society.

I actively participate in the activity of scientific research in individual projects as well as between university research networks made up of the Universidad de Guadalajara, Universidad Panamericana and the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana Unidad Azcapotzalco.
I have developed several research projects in design user centered and about usability; inside them highlights issues of social impact, public health, and visualization of information.
