About me

I am a mathematician interested in both, theoretical aspects of mathematics and applications. I received my PhD in 2016 at Université de Montpellier, under the supervision of Lionel Thibault. Afterward, in 2017-2018, I was a post-doctorate at PROMES Laboratory of CNRS (Perpignan, France), which is one of the main research centers on solar energy of the country. During that time, I worked under the supervision of Didier Aussel. After a short period of post-doctoral fellowship at CMM under the supervision of Aris Daniilidis, I finally arrived at Universidad de O'Higgins in 2020, where I work as researcher and full-time professor.

My current research revolves around optimization, game theory and variational analysis. I love to teach at all levels (bachelor, master, graduate) and to work with young motivated researchers. At the university, I am involved in different projects and activities, such as the Academic Induction Program (PIA) for new students, the Academic Council of the University, the development of courses in optimization and game theory for the Engineering school, and the study of water management in agriculture at O'Higgins Region, to name a few.

I am always open to collaborate and to get into new subjects and interesting questions. I consider myself to be a committed researcher and professor. You can always contact me and for sure I will have time to talk over a coffee.
