Academic skills

My interest in technology began at an early age –It always intrigued me to understand how things work and why they were designed that way. This led me to complete my studies in mechatronic engineering at the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, in Mexico. After completing these studies, my interests expanded towards aspects of strategy and management. This led me to pursue specialization studies in business consulting and market research. Naturally, my interests broadened once more, this time towards aspects of product design, and for the first time, I discovered the concept of innovation. On this occasion, I decided to pursue a master degree abroad, resulting in the completion of the Global Innovation Management programme, undertaken jointly at the University of Strathclyde in Scotland and the Technical University of Hamburg in Germany. During this period, I developed important attributes for my professional development, such as subject specialization, resourcefulness and confidence. All these experiences stemmed in me a renewed interest in the impact of technology on society and economy, motivating me to pursue a PhD degree studying the importance of digital innovation in the context the fourth industrial revolution.

Work-related learning

My passion for technology, and later for innovation, also help to forge my professional career. Soon after I finished my bachelor studies, I started working as an independent project manager. This short but meaningful period was an excellent opportunity to develop my critical thinking, resourceful and adaptable skills. This experience, together with the support of my family, motivated me to start my own company. A three-year venture, with the main objective of placing digital and automation technologies at the service of producers and researchers in biotechnology areas. However, by giving priority to my postgraduate studies, I decided to leave my position as general manager of the company. The mission of CODITEC, as the company was formerly known, still lives under a parent company, delivering great products and customer support to clients all around Mexico. This entrepreneurial experience gave me the opportunity to develop my collaboration, communication and social awareness skills.

Extra-curricular activities

As part of my personal development, I decided to pursue a master programme abroad, I selected the Global Innovation Management programme, which entailed two years of learning through a joint curriculum between the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, and the Technical University of Hamburg, in Hamburg, Germany. Over the course of these two years, I gained an extended understanding of European cultures, and improved my communication and inter-cultural skills motivated by the challenges I faced during this period. Additionally, throughout my master’s degree, I participated in several events organized by the institutions where I studied. These opportunities assisted me to further develop communication, and collaboration skills, which were particularly challenging due to limitations of language, experience and understanding. However, by the time I finished the programme I was able to coordinate activities with teams located across the world, I could understand and contribute to the work style of several organizations, and I improved my interpersonal skills.
