Victor was born in Mexico City in 1995. At a young age he was accepted at UNAM (Autonomous National University of Mexico) attending secondary school, high school and college. In college, he was accepted in a new Mexican major known as Biomedical Physics. He was the first generation of students, and obtained his B.Sc. degree in June 2018. Immediately after, Victor was hired by the UNAM, and worked as a teacher for fist-year Biomedical Physics undergraduate students for three years. He also had the opportunity to work as a teacher in the SMRI (Mexican Society of Radiology and Imaging) for Radiation Technologists during 2019-2020.
During college, Victor showed great interest in subjects related to Radiation Physics, Diagnostic Radiology, and Radiotherapy, this interest encouraged him, not only to share his knowledge with new students, but also to pursue graduate studies abroad. McGill University was an excellent option for him. Victor is now in his second year of the M.Sc. program in Medical Physics at McGill University, and joined the Enger Lab in early 2021. In this lab, Victor has been working on a detector development project for a new brachytherapy seed.
