Ruben graduated from the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, where he completed a B. Eng. in Mechatronics and M.Sc. in Electronics. During his studies, he worked on several projects focused on biomedical and sustainable engineering. Upon completing his degrees, he worked in an engineering consulting firm for three years.
In 2016, he was awarded a full CONACyT-ETS scholarship for PhD graduate studies at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS). During his PhD, he studied the production of next-generation nanomedicines on an industrial scale based on liposomes. Ruben graduated from ÉTS in 2020. The same year, he joined as a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Julia Burnier’s laboratory. His research focuses on extracellular vesicles and their role in cancer metastasis. He is also interested in the production of EV-like liposomes using microfluidics to study cell-to-cell communication. The New Frontiers in Research grant funds this work. In his free time, Ruben likes practicing karate shotokan, learning photography, recreative biking, and traveling.
