Professor Rigoberto Juarez-Salazar studied at the Instituto Tecnológico Superior de Zacapoaxtla, where he obtained the title of Mechatronics Engineer in 2009, graduating as the best student of his generation. In the same year, he began his postgraduate studies at the Faculty of Physical-Mathematical Sciences of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. In 2011 he obtained the degree of Master of Science (Applied Physics) with Honorable Mention for his thesis work on Controllable Dynamical Systems. In 2014 he received the degree of Doctor of Science (Applied Physics), graduating with Highest Praise for his thesis work in Interferometry and Optical Metrology. In 2015 he carried out a postdoctoral stay at the Physics Institute of the Universidad Tecnológica de la Mixteca developing a research project about optical testing of telescope mirrors. From the end of 2015 to date, Professor Juarez-Salazar joined to Catedras-Conacyt Program of the National Council for Science and Technology (Conacyt, Mexico), working as Conacyt Research Fellow at the Center for Research and Development of Digital Technology of the National Polytechnic Institute, CITEDI-IPN, Mexico.

Professor Juarez-Salazar is developing the funded projects Basic Science Conacyt “Multidimensional data processing methods in structured light projection systems” (2019-2022) and Catedras-Conacyt “Development of advanced systems for signal processing and telecommunications” (2015-2025). Also, he is a collaborator in multiple projects with institutional funding. To date, Professor Juarez-Salazar has 21 research papers published in prestigious international journals and more than 30 works published in international conference proceedings. Professor Juarez-Salazar contributes to human resources training by teaching courses in master and doctorate programs of the CITEDI-IPN. He is the thesis advisor of four doctoral students, two master students, and several students of the Summer of Scientific Research program in Mexico.

Professor Juarez-Salazar has received multiple awards from the American Society of Optics (OSA, United States) and the International Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE, United States) for his outstanding service as a reviewer in the most important scientific journals in the optics area. By his achievements in conducting original research work, Professor Juarez-Salazar belongs to the National System of Researchers (SNI, Level 1, Mexico). He is an active member of the Mexican Academy of Optics (AMO, Mexico) and the International Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE).
