About Me

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics of Computational Science (MACS) group at the University of Twente (UT), the Netherlands. My research interests lie in the intersection of wave phenomena, boundary integral equations, and high-order PDE solvers.

Before joining UT, I was with the Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC). I joined PUC after two years as an Instructor in Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where I worked with Prof. Steven Johnson and taught, among others, the graduate course "Fast Methods for Partial Differential and Integral Equations" (18.336).

I got a Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in 2016 under Prof. Oscar Bruno, and both a master's and a bachelor's degree in Mathematical Engineering from PUC, where I was supported by Premio Padre Alberto Hurtado and CONICYT, respectively.

I am currently seeking highly motivated graduate and undergraduate students who want to pursue research in applied mathematics. If you're one, and you're interested in my research, please do not hesitate to contact me.
