Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Engineering at Universidad de Valparaíso (UV) and a member of the research center CIMFAV-UV. Previously, from September of 2017 to July of 2018, I held a Postdoctoral position at Inria Sophia Antipolis – Méditerranée where my host was Denis Talay. In parallel, from March 2018 I have developed a FONDECYT Postdoctoral Research project with the sponsoring  of Gregorio Moreno.

In 2016 I completed my Ph.D. in Mathematical Modeling at Universidad de Chile under the supervision of Joaquin Fontbona. During my Ph.D. thesis I also worked with Mireille Bossy.

Research fields and interest

  • Stochastic processes and their numerical approximations.
