B.S. in C.S Order of Engineering


I am a Computational Scientist from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). I am also a Software Engineering by training(B.S. and M.S. in Computer Science), and I have a Professional M.S. in Computational Science as well as my Ph.D. It has always been my passion to combine inter/multi-disciplinary work from different fields. That is why I am currently developing research in a multi-disciplinary field named Computational Science.

My main research interest is the study of uncertainty. I enjoy to work with Dr. Kreinovich using interval computations (IC) and fuzzy logic to model real world applications, specially to cyberinfrastructures, which include the field of Geophysics and Earth Sciences.

In addition to my research interest, I also worked with Dr. Roach in the field of Ethics in Computer Science for the Center of Science, Technology, Ethics and Policy. We are interested to analyzing and discussing ethical issues that many may think are trivial (e.g., what is privacy? What is transparency?), but in reality they are quite challenging to quantify.. I enjoy to relate concepts from 'different' disciplines (i.e., philosophy and computer science).

I enjoy to teach. I have been teaching at El Paso Community College since the Fall of 2008, fundamentals in Computer Science, as well at the New Mexico Dona Ana Community College (DACC), and in the Computer Science Dept. at UTEP. I am a GK-12 fellow, a NSF sponsored program that allows me to teach Physics and Computational Applications in Chemistry at Canutillo Early College Highschool.
