Ángel holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and a master’s degree in chemical sciences from the School of Chemistry (UNAM). He also attained a PhD in chemistry from the University of Bristol (UK). He did a research stay at UCLA (USA) during his PhD studies. Subsequently, he undertook postdoctoral studies at the Department of Applied Physics of the University of Aalto, Finland.


His academic and professional career has allowed him to develop a vast experience in the area of materials chemistry. He has specialized knowledge of the preparation, design and characterization of organic materials with optical and electrical properties. These are some of the most outstanding research works in which he has participated: a) the design, preparation and characterization of composite biomaterials with magnetic properties from iron and gelatin nanoparticles, b) the organic synthesis of pi-conjugated molecules covalently bound to low molecular weight biomolecules to obtain anisotropic materials and c) the development of a gelation method for the preparation of cellulosic composite materials with reversible redox and spectroscopic properties.


Other professional activities include teaching different topics of general chemistry at a higher level in public and private universities, both nationally and internationally. In addition to drafting technical reports of food supplements necessary for compliance with the process of operation notifications before COFEPRIS, and specialized translation of technical documents related to pharmaceuticals and medical devices.


Moreover, Angel has participated in several courses regarding the development of intercultural competencies in multicultural workplaces. He took a course for the preparation of audiovisual content for the popularization of science offered by the BBC.
