I am originally from Mexico and at present I am a Ph.D. student in Computer Science at the Ecole Doctorale en Informatique et Télécommunications in Toulouse, France. My academic formation is in both Computer Science and Biology and I am particularly interested in studying complex systems using techniques based on biological paradigms to solve computational problems. I am currently interested in applying genetic algorithms to evolve cellular automata in order to obtain models of artificial cellular development. My main goal is to study how complex structures and forms can emerge from a small group of seed cells. I am particularly interested in the generation of structures by means of self-organization.
