Olympiads

I first became acquainted with Science as a career by being a contestant in the Mexican Mathematics Olympiad during my High-School years. I was a three times medalist in the National Contest (1997-1999), and in 1998 I got a perfect exam (by that time, only 6 people had done it). I represented my country in the XIII Iberoamerican Mathematics Olympiad in which I was awarded a Silver Medal. Next year I participated in the 40th International Mathematics Olympiad as part of the Mexican Team.

After that, I became a trainer of new contestants in the Mathematics Olympiad, and began to get involved in the Informatics Olympiad as evaluator of the National Contest.

I later on joined the University of Guanajuato ACM's International Collegiate Programming Contest (ICPC) team which brought me the joy of representing my country again in the ICPC World Finals in Beverly Hills in 2003.

That team later invited me to join the group of trainers of the Guanajuato State Informatics Olympiad (OIEG), and I was the president during the first year in the history of Mexican Olympiads in which one state won 4 out of 4 Gold Medals.

As a by-product of the years of training, two good friends (Marte Ramírez and Edgar "Limo" Hernández) and I just finished writing a book on programming in the simulated language Karel. We are even mentioned in the Wikipedia page of Karel ;).
