3 things about me

  • I am currently writing my master thesis in the University of Freiburg about the effects of coal open-pit mining on the environment
  • I enjoy writing and playing music (I play th bass and guitar with an indie rock band in Freiburg)
  • I am interested in social projects especially those directed towards education and environmental awareness

My life beyond the project

I will return to Mexico upon finishing my thesis to try to implement certain environmentally progressive ideas that are common in Europe but have not been fully exploited in Latin America. I also wish to continue publishing both scientific articles and other literary pieces of interest about the effects of humans on the planet.

For me Open The World is:
A chance to make a positive difference in the lives of children so that they may too one day drive positive change. OTW is a great chance for young motivated individuals to get together to plan, organize and carry out a project which will help both the development of the children and the development of the individuals involved.

3 things about me

  • I love music, especially playing saxophone and improvising with a group of people
  • I love nature and exploring it through sports like climbing, paragliding, surfing and diving
  • I love life and this planet and am trying to bring a positive change – may it be through research for my PhD or projects like the ones we try to develop with IniCha

My life beyond the project

I am currently pursuing my PhD in Astrophysics on the Canary islands, on Tenerife. The planet and this universe are so fascinating and I am very excited about what we can find out in the next years. Next to my scientific work, I do lots of sports in the wonderful nature of the islands, play some music and engage in community projects as much as my time allows.

For me Open The World is:
… the chance to inspire children who did not have the same opportunities as I had and give them the feeling that, if you put your mind to it, nothing is impossible. At the same time, Open the World is for us the chance to really develop our first project as an international organization and work and face the challenges which our structure brings with it. It is a chance for us and the children to learn together, enrich each others lives and by doing so, maybe even inspire others to start doing the same!
