My name is Rodolfo, but you may call me Rod. I am studying a BS in Mathematics at the University of Guanajuato, although I鈥檝e focused a bit on Computer Science. I鈥檓 currently working on my thesis, which consists on developing an AI model to classify emotions with facial expressions in the wild. The idea is to propose a model which can be deployed in portable devices, such as a Raspberry Pi.

I am the Tech Lead and Director of #FutureLab, an innovation laboratory I co-founded with my friend Richard at the uni. In Future Lab we focus mainly in three things: creating, educating and networking about technological solutions to surrounding problems.

Right now, I am a GitHub Campus Expert 馃毄, but I have also served as a Google Student Ambassador back in 2014-2015. I like to work on tech projects that help people, which has allowed me to had a contribution to a project presented in iGEM鈥檚 Giant Jamboree back in 2016 (we got a silver award).

In my professional development as a tech creator, I鈥檓 serving as a research assistant in the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT), working on some AI solutions for several fields involving Human-Centered Computing and industry. This implies some experience with image processing, data manipulation and deployment of ML models, which has also allowed me to make an internship at Harvard University during summer 2017, working with ML models for molecules. Besides this, I鈥檓 also part of a public innovation and open government laboratory in Le贸n, Guanajuato.

My scientific formation during college makes me feel concerned about scientific vocation of any young student in Mexico. This is why I鈥檓 a #TeamGuanajuato comitee member of Clubes de Ciencia M茅xico, an organization which focuses in sharing science with youth, building connections between students and young scientists and designing and sharing online courses.

I love my country, I love my family and I love what I do. 馃嚥馃嚱
