Since the beginning of my education (I am a social anthropologist) I joined one research projects on the Maya of the Yucatan Peninsula (where I'm from), that helped me to completely change my perspective on the lives of people in the field, learning needs, gaps and challenges faced in the population over the centuries has been marginalized and discriminated against in Mexico. This way I can say that my experience in field work over 10 years has encouraged me to learn more and more of cultural otherness. I dare say that the anthropological fieldwork is my life, and it's what I do best, qualitative research is my strength and my quantitative research challenge to overcome.
For a while I retreated to the Academy in the role of teacher, although not my forte, I delighted when you realize you've managed to insert the seed of curiosity in your students. Three years is my experience as a teacher, is something I enjoy and could also consider it one of my experiences and interests.
As an anthropologist my strong line of research is medical anthropology, both my undergraduate training (a thesis on healers eastern Yucatan Maya), as in the master (an investigation into the social determinants of health in Mexico border Belize) and has grown versed in this aspect of anthropology.
My work interests are now focused on enriching my experience in the field from the perspective of social analysis from participation in international research programs that require this kind of analysis.
