Faculty of Divinity





I'm a physician undergoing a PhD in Theology and Religious Studies. I'm interested in the intersection of the Biblical Text, Linguistics, and Medicine. Hence, I'm researching the Medical Language of the Greek Pentateuch. 

I graduated as a physician in 2017 in Mexico. Then, I studied for a Master of Arts in Theological Studies and a Master of Divinity at the Reformed Theological Seminary in North Carolina. My interest in scholarship—specifically Biblical studies—grew there until I presented a paper at the International Organization of Septuagint and Cognate Studies in 2022 in Zürich, Switzerland. Upon finishing my studies in the US, I was accepted for a PhD at the University of Cambridge.

I enjoy reading broadly, having good conversations with friends, going to church, and spending time with my family.
