Antonio received his degree in chemical engineering from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) in 2013. During this period he did a research internship in bio-processes at the Institute of Biotechnology (IBT), UNAM (2010), he worked as a scholar at Procter & Gamble in the finance department (2011-2012) and was awarded a scholarship to attend Stanford Summer International Honors Program at Stanford University (2012). He did his thesis on process optimization; later this work was published in an indexed journal of international circulation.
Antonio is currently conducting a PhD in chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge. His research focuses on developing bio-processes and optimizing their efficiency. With this, he aims to economize the production of bio-fuels and bio-products, which are friendly to the environment, thus contributing to a social, economic and environmentally sustainable industry.
Antonio has 8 publications in indexed journals with international circulation on the topic of modeling and optimization of bioprocesses, he has supervised undergraduate and graduate level students and has mentored thesis projects for graduate level students at the University of Cambridge. Among his most relevant publications is the development of the process that maximizes the production of bio-hydrogen for use as fuel. This process has the highest efficiency reported in bio-production of hydrogen.

Eduardo is developing a Model of Reciprocity in Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). Reciprocity (do something, receive something) is a main factor in human-human interaction. Reciprocity is a condition for other social phenomena as influence, altruism and fair trades. Following this example, it is possible to describe efficient interactions in HRI. The approach for this research is interdisciplinary and Game Theory is the main set of tools to describe quantitatively this phenomenon. NEC New Zealand is the sponsor of this research and provide a Papero robot. Nao robots are used to develop the experiments as well.
Eduardo has a Master degree in Industrial Design by the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) and a Bachelor degree in Bionic Engineering by the IPN (National Polytechnic Institute of Mexico). He did an internship in the Laboratory of Intelligent Robotics headed by Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro in Osaka University. He has 1 year of Industrial Design studies in the UAM (Metropolitan Autonomous University). He is one of the founders of the HRI group in the Graduate Program of Industrial Design in the UNAM. For this initiative he was awarded with the medal "Alfonso Caso" ; the highest honor given to a graduate student in the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
Eduardo worked in the Biomedical industry and he was part of GRE; the first company that distributed Aldebaran robots in Latinamerica. Besides, he was a lecturer in the UNAM (Master in Industrial Design), IPN ( UPIBI, UPIITA and CECyT 9) and other institutions in Mexico.
