I am a PhD student in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia, working with Dr. Merje Kuus and Dr. Elvin Wyly. I obtained a Master of Arts in Geography in May 2020, in the same department. I have a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations from Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico). For my dissertation, I study how the advances in digital technologies contribute to the management of transnational identities and migration decision-making of highly skilled immigrants from the Global South. I am also affiliated with the Borders Research Group.
