I'm a Postdoctoral Associate at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. I work with Antoine Cerfon and Leslie Greengard developing numerical methods for problems arising in the computational simulation of plasma physics.

I got a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Delaware under the supervision of Prof. Francisco-Javier Sayas. My doctoral research focused on the mathematics arising from the study of wave scattering with a strong emphasis on the design and rigorous analysis of methods for numerical simulation of wave propagation in the time domain.

Some of the frequent techniques appearing on my current work are the use of boundary integral equation formulations and their corresponding discretization by the Boundary Element Method, Convolution Quadrature for time evolution and the coupling of Boundary Elements with Finite Elements for the treatment of scattering by obstacles with non-homogeneous physical properties.

I was born and raised in Mexico City, I got a B.Sc. in Physics (under the supervision of Prof. Iouri N. Skiba ) and a M.Sc. in Mathematics (under the supervision of Prof. Antonio Capella) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).
