Eunice holds a major in International Relations and master studies in International Development. Her first approach to Open was in 2013, while collaborating as Visitor Research Associate within the AidData Research Lab from The William and Mary College. There she got familiar with open governmental data while retrieving and geocoding the AidData 3.0 datasets. She also collaborated with Development GateWay deploying the first ARC GIS open dashboard on the AidData 3.0 website. She went back to Mexico in 2014 to do some research at the Center for Research and Teaching in Economics as a research assistant for Open and Digital Government. She has some academic publications in regards to Open Government Data and has collaborated with the Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at State University of New York at Albany in the same academic topics. Since 2015 she works for the National Council of Science and Technology in Mexico coordinating the National Open Access Strategy, now the National Open Science Policy.
