About Me

I am an Assistant Professor (UD-1, with tenure) in the Mathematics of Computational Science (MACS) group at the University of Twente (UT), The Netherlands.

My research focuses on wave phenomena, boundary integral equations, and high-order PDE solvers.

Before joining UT, I was with the Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC). Prior to that, I spent two years as an Instructor in Applied Mathematics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Department of Mathematics, where I mainly worked with Prof. Steven Johnson. At MIT, I taught various courses, including the graduate course "Fast Methods for Partial Differential and Integral Equations" (18.336).

I hold a Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), awarded in 2016 under the guidance of Prof. Oscar Bruno. Additionally, I obtained a master's and a bachelor's degree in Mathematical Engineering from PUC, with support from Premio Padre Hurtado and CONICYT, respectively.
