Sergio Camacho-León received a B.S. degree in physics engineering, a M.S. degree in electronics engineering, and a Ph.D. degree in information technology and communications from Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, in 2003, 2006 and 2010, respectively. Later, from 2010 to 2012, he held a postdoctoral fellowship on micro-electro-mechanical systems for biomedical applications (BioMEMS) at the same institution. As a visiting research scholar, he has been with the Institute for Complex Engineered Systems, Carnegie Mellon University, USA, from 2008 to 2009; the Institute of Micromechanics and Photonics, Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, in 2005; the Computational Physics Laboratory, EPF-Ecole d'Ingénieurs généraliste, France, in 2002; and the Department of Physics, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, Chile, from 2000 to 2001.

In 2012, Dr. Camacho-León was appointed professor in School of Engineering and Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, where he teaches at the graduate and undergraduate level on Electrical Engineering, Microelectromechanical Systems, Advanced Microsystems, Computer Simulations, Microsystems for Biotechnology, Selected Topics of Electronics and Optics, and Innovation in Engineering. In 2016, he founded the Laboratory of Internet of Things in the Monterrey Campus with the support of Intel. His current research activities focuses on the integration of micro/nano-electromechanical structures and microfluidic networks on printed circuit boards for the development of novel, multiphysics and  miniaturized sensing nodes with applications to IoT and cyber-physical systems.

Dr. Camacho-Leon is a member of the National System of Researchers (SNI-CONACYT), IEEE senior member, IEEE-HKN inductee, member of the Mexican Research Network on Robotics and Mechatronics (RobMec-CONACYT) and Microsoft Faculty Fellow. He is the 2016-2017 IEEE Monterrey Section Chair and the 2016-2017 IEEE Young Professionals Chair of the Mexico Council. Likewise, he regularly serves as a reviewer for the Journal of Micro/Nanolithography MEMS and MOEMS, Optical Engineering journal, Applied Optics journal, and Electrophoresis journal.
