While doing his PhD in Physics at the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona, Spain, he resumed his interest  in photography, exploring new techniques, including time-lapse, with which he created videos that were used to promote the activities of the experiment Major Atmospheric Gamma Imaging Cherenkov telescopes. After obtaining his doctorate, he returned to Mexico to make a postdoctoral stay at the newly opened High Altitude Water Cherenkov observatory where, in addition to developing scientific work, he applied his experience in photo, video and 2D animation to create content for social networks of this experiment. To improve his work as a science communicator, he has taken specialized courses on Scientific Outreach and Non-fiction Narrative at UNAM. His animations and videos of time-lapse have appeared in videoreports of Physics World, El Universal, TV Azteca, El País and Gizmodo.
