Marcos grew up in the outskirts of Mexico City, He obtained a BSc degree in Nanotechnology and molecular engineering from the Universad de Las Americas Puebla (UDLAP) in Puebla. Mexico, 2016. During his degree he had the opportunity to work in the research projects: Development, synthesis and characterisation of nanomaterials, thin sol-gel TiO2-SiO2coatings using dip-coating method, and Electrochemistry study of the Zinc reduction over glassy carbon and platinum electrodes using 2-AmineEthanol and Choline Chloride as support electrolytes. In 2017 Marcos joined the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials CDT as a MSc student.

Now, Marcos is doing his PhD as part of the BCFN in the project “Nano-Calyst Laden Filaments for 3D Printed Gas Evolution Reaction Driven Pneumatic Soft Artificial Muscles” under the supervision of Prof. Charl Faul and PhD Michael Dicker.

In his spare time, he enjoys cycling, going out with his friends and practicing sports of any kind.
