### News:

• A new paper on the stability of traveling
fronts for reaction-diffusion equations with degenerate
diffusion coefficient, written in collaboration with Luis F.
López Ríos and J. Francisco Leyva, has been recently published
in the *Indiana Univ. Math. J*. The link to the

## Brief vita

- Since June 2020, I am a Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Mechanics, in the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Systems (IIMAS), of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

- From March 2012 until May 2020, I was an Associate Professor at IIMAS, UNAM in the same department.

- From March 2007 until February 2012, I was an Assistant
Professor at IIMAS, UNAM in the same department.

- Since January 2009, I am a member of the University Program for Nonlinear Phenomena and Mechanics (FENOMEC).

- Since January 2015, I am an Associate Editor of
*Acta Applicandae Mathematicae*, and since May 2017 I am Editor-in-chief (along with E. O'Reilly and V. Kravchenko) of the*Boletín de la Sociedad Matemática Mexicana*.

- During 2005 – 2006, I was a Research Assistant at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Leipzig, Germany. I belonged to the Nonlinear Continuum Mechanics group, led by Prof. Heinrich Freistühler.

- During 2003 – 2004, I was a Research Associate at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig, Germany, in Prof. Stefan Müller's group.

- I got my Ph. D. in Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University, under the supervision of Prof. Jonathan B. Goodman.

- My research interests include stability of traveling waves, nonlinear dynamics in continuum mechanics, and mathematical biology.
