Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, one of Latin America’s leading industrial and innovative cities, I am an enthusiastic entrepreneur currently a Project Manager at GenLots, a Swiss, machine learning software startup changing the way order planning is today at industrial companies. At GenLots I am also writing my master thesis for my final semester of the Master of Science in Management, Technology, and Entrepreneurship (M.S. MTE) at École Polytechnic Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL); EPFL is home to one of Switzerland’s two world-renowned Federal Institutes of Technology.
I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering with a minor in Entrepreneurship from the University of Southern California (USC). During my studies I also spent an exchange semester at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Upon returning I had the opportunity as founding President to kickstart USC’s chapter of the young Mexican Entrepreneur Association (AEM Jóvenes).
I have also spent two years working in Los Angeles in the construction industry, project managing two different high-rise projects. I also joined the Voces Latinas Toastmasters’ chapter where I obtained my Competent Communicator Certificate, as well as achieved first place in the Inspirational Speech Area Level Contest and second place in the Table Topics Division Level Contest.
When I am not spending time with family or friends, I am reading or listening to audiobooks, or playing soccer, running, doing yoga, salsa dancing or cooking.
