About me:

I am an M.A. student in Transcultural Studies. I graduated from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education with a Bachelor in Communication Studies in 2011, and after that I worked as a sessional instructor of written composition in that same university and as a video editor. I chose the U of C because of its multidisciplinary approach to the study of culture and film. My research project, supervised by Dr. Cheryl Dueck, looks into the aesthetic of sound design in films, and its relation to the portrayal of collective trauma. Some of my favourite books are Ensayo Sobre la Ceguera by José Saramago, Bring me your love by Charles Bukowski and Pudor by Santiago Roncagliolo; regarding films, the ones that I have enjoyed the most are Three billboards outside Ebbing Missouri, The Lobster, El violín, as well as all the movies by Quentin Tarantino. My other interests include film post-production and sound design, through which I have been able to participate in a few independent Mexican film productions.
