As the Graduate Representative Chair, Jesus’ vision is to foster an environment of collaboration and involvement among the student body as a whole. Through his research, he aims to bridge engineering, science and art, for the deployment of arts as a form of therapy, education, and to explore basic human neuroscience questions. His contributions have produced tools and protocols to analyze human neural patterns in unconstrained artistic reflection/production, and social interactions. He is the inaugural recipient of the University of Houston – Houston Methodist Research Institute doctoral fellowship in translational research. In his free time, he enjoys dancing salsa.
