Om mig

I am a medical physicist certified in Mexico (2009) and Sweden (2021). After completing my MSc in Medical Physics at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de México, I moved to Sweden to pursue a PhD in Medical Sciences at Uppsala University. In 2016 I successfully defended my PhD thesis on the topic of computational micro/nanodosimetry for biological response estimation. Following this I attained a position as a postdoctoral researcher at the same institution where I dedicated my work to develop a nanodosimetric based RBE (relative biological effectiveness) model for hadron therapy.

Since 2019 I am working as a medical physicist at the Karolinska University Hospital. Apart form clinical work, I continue doing research by leading projects on the subjects of RTQA for clinical trials and implementation of MR-only workflows in the clinic. Since 2018 I am a member of EURADOS in Working Group 6 dedicated to computational dosimetry. Most recently I have been selected to be part of the Young Editorial Board of EJMP Physica Medica.
