Ph. D. in Social and Political sciences. M.A. in International Relations from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) The core of my research activities is in the area of IR theory and methodology, Mexican Foreign Policy and International Politics, as reflected in 25 contributions with area chapters in IR books and 20 articles in specialized journals. My specific areas of interest include global affairs, topics of the contemporary international agenda and peace processes and conflict resolution. I have been a member of the National Research System sponsored by our National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) since 2007 and I am presently confirmed as an active member until the end of 2020. I teach IR theory courses, International perspective, Mexican Foreign Policy Analysis and the IR Seminar at the undergraduate level. I have also taught different subjects in the Master's program on Strategic Prospective and in the Ph.D. program in the social sciences. I have 28 years of professional and academic experience in Mexico and abroad. I have participated in more than 70 national and international conferences and I am an active member of professional associations such as the International Studies Association (ISA), Latin American Studies Association (LASA) and the Mexican International Studies Association (AMEI). I am a faculty member of the Ph. D. program at the Universidad de la Plata in Argentina, the Master's program in IR at Universidad de Viña del Mar in Chile. I also participate in research groups, such as the one devoted to the project on Regionalization processes and International Cooperation. I am a national evaluator for CONACYT sponsored fellowships and member of the group of experts of the National Evaluation Center (CENEVAL) for the general exam for international relations graduates. Besides my teaching and research experience, I have also worked for the public and private sectors in Mexico. I joined Tec de Monterrey as a full time professor and researcher in January of 2000. In two occasions (2006 and 2011) I was awarded institutional recognition for my research and teaching activities and in 2012 I obtained my professorship. From 2003 to 2007 I was responsible for the area of IR student's affairs and from July of 2012 to January 2016 I was the Head of the IR and Political Science Department. From January 2016 to July 2017 I was named Academic Director for the Business, Social Sciences and Humanities School. In addition, since June 2015 I was selected by the joint Committee of Rectors and Vice rectors as National Leader of the disciplinary area of Social Sciences and the Humanities of the Academic Vice Rectory, a responsibility which allowed me to participate in different projects of the Strategic Plan for 2020, particularly in the initiatives for Tec 21, and the Coordination of the National Strategic Committee of the area of Social Sciences and the Humanities of Tec de Monterrey.
