Assistant Professor

About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente (UT). My research interests lie in the intersection of wave phenomena, boundary integral equations, and high-order PDE solvers.

Before joining UT, I was an Assistant Professor of the Institute of Mathematical and Computational Engineering at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC). Before that, I was an Instructor in Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at MIT. I received a Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Caltech in 2016, working with Prof. Oscar Bruno. Before, Caltech, I got a master's in Engineering Sciences and a bachelor's in Mathematical Engineering, both from PUC.

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.
