The activities I use to do include: research, teaching, and industrial projects. The research focuses on the design and implementation of intelligent distributed systems. More recently, around 2009, the study and implementation of a biological inspired cognitive architecture named cuāyōllōtl (brain in nahuatl). The objective of this research is to endow informatic entities (software systems, virtual creatures, robots, etc.) with autonomous human-like behavior. The second activity of teaching includes lectures for postgraduate students (Distributed Systems, Distributed Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive computation ), and also for industry (programming embedded systems, operating systems). Finally, another activity includes participating in industrial and goverment projects.

The creation and consolidation of workgroups is important. From 1999 to 2009, I lead the research group in Computer Science at the CINVESTAV. From 1999 to 2002, I was president of the computer chapter of IEEE in the occident of Mexico. From 2000 to 2004, I organized the IEEE International Symposium on Advanced Distributed Systems in Guadalajara, Mexico. In January 2001, I started the CDS (Centre of Software Development) at the CINVESTAV-GDL. Currently, I lead a research group working on the design and implementation of cognitive architecture. this team includes researchers from ITESO, UAEM campus Toluca, UPSin, and ITAM, and UDG two campuses.
