About meEdit

From Ensenada, Baja California in Mexico, but currently living and working in Vista, CA, San Diego North county. I'm an electronics engineer, and a student of acoustics. I got my Bachelor's from the University of Baja California in 2004, in Mexico and my PhD from the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom, in 2012.

My interests are mainly in engineering and science, but I also love the humanities and many other different topics. I hope to contribute as much as possible to Wikipedia in general, both to the English and Spanish versions.
