Additionally, his research focuses on areas of special interest, such as the process of adopting behaviors that modify the human body (shaving, tattoos, piercings) among adolescents, the consequences of being the child of a mother whose pregnancy had preeclampsia or ended prematurely, and the long-term effects of intrauterine exposure to the Zika virus.

Recently, as part of his professional development, he completed a master’s degree in Medical Education, which has led him to delve into research in that field, especially concerning teaching spaces for learning to deliver bad news, and his involvement in the processes of teaching administration and curriculum development in his position as Director of Medical Education at the UIS School of Medicine.
