In May 2016, Luis earned his PhD in Latin American History focusing on the regional histories of Mexico. He received his B.A. in Law from the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí and his M.A. in History from El Colegio de San Luis.  His research interests include the cultural and intellectual history of nineteenth and twentieth century Mexico, specifically, its nation-state building processes by analyzing patriotic celebrations and public rituals.  He is  also interested in the history of mass media and technology's development in Mexico as a result of 1910 Cultural Revolution.  His first book, La Alameda Potosina ante la llegada del ferrocarril (2009) is an intellectual and cultural history on the impact the railway had in the region of San Luis Potosí.   His dissertation examines how the Mexican revolution changed the legal and institutional culture that transformed society’s relationship with authority. Through an analysis of radio, cinema, and legal processes, his work analyzes how revolutionaries— no matter their education or condition— dared to dream of a new culture of rights, justice, and institutions.  He examines how this culture was popularized and how society experienced it, both locally and regionally, forging a new relationship with the revolutionary government.  These were changes that became a popular expression of a revolutionary legal and institutional culture.
