Yair wanted to understand the phenomena around him, which was one of the reasons why he decided to study physics, to continue observing his surroundings and explain them through mathematics.
When he graduated from high school, he followed his dream of studying at the UNAM Science Faculty, where he is the fifth semester. Last year his passion for science led him to write his first paper on radiation measurement in space and to be admitted as a student-researcher to the Orion program of the United States National Administration of Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
He was also invited by the University of Samara in Russia, to collaborate in the development of a satellite component that measures the amount of ions in the ionosphere.
One of his greatest achievements to date is that he joined NASA through the International Space Education Board. NASA was interested in the research he conducted with Dr. Epifanio Cruz Zaragoza on measuring radiation in space, a development that made it possible to prevent health risks in astronauts.
Yair describes himself as someone who is passionate about his work, and an easy-going person who does not spend much of his time on social networks. In the future, he would like to pursue postgraduate studies. He is a scientist who has set his sights on something beyond the sky, who wants to put Mexico and UNAM on the map with his contributions to the conquest of space.
