He will be starting his own laboratory at the Department of Neuroscience in Washington University in early 2018.

His research program aims to define how different brain regions interact to solve motion processing and visual object recognition, using a combination of reversible deactivation and microstimulation techniques as well as computational modeling.

He received his M.D-Ph.D. from Harvard Medical School and his Bachelor of Science from the University of Utah. He is originally from Chihuahua, Mexico.
