Austin is a Mechatronics Engineer from the Peruvian University of Applied Sciences (UPC). In the development of his studies at the secondary level he developed the value of teamwork, optimism, empathy and perseverance. These values were strengthened in various projects and competitions such as the National School Fair of Science and Technology (EUREKA), which allowed him to generate new ideas for the care of the environment and the harmony of human beings with nature. Austin believes that, to be winners in life, we must persevere and never be conformists. He tells us that once his mother told him a phrase that would mark his life and that he will never forget:

"Never give up even though on your path you may only see darkness, always at the end of the road there will be a ray of light for those who persevere."


Since his first year at the University (2020), Austin has been involved in different areas of development regarding technology, he joined IEEE RAS UPC (2022), with the intention of sharing knowledge, supporting new members and working as a team. In addition, this group supports different students who have that determination and motivation to build a robot, is an organization that you will find students from different careers, but with a single goal which is to learn about technology. Lately he participated in CONEIMERA XXIX (2023). He is a resilient young man, friendly, who likes to support everyone without getting anything in return and always optimistic in any situation.
