I was raised in Montevideo, Uruguay, and have double Uruguayan-Spanish nationality, a large part of my family having roots in La Rioja, Spain.

I am a Junior Professor in the symplectic working group in Heidelberg University, Germany, as part of the Research station for Geometry & Dynamics.

I am a member of the STRUCTURES interdisciplinary cluster of excellence, and also a Member at the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), in Princeton, NJ, USA, working with Prof. Helmut Hofer. See here for details on my research, and mathematical interests.

I have been a Postdoctoral Fellow at Uppsala Universitet, in Uppsala, Sweden, forming part of the research group headed by Dr. Tobias Ekholm. Before, I enjoyed a Junior Research Fellowship at the Mittag-Leffler Institute in Djursholm, Sweden. I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Augsburg Universität, in Augsburg, Germany, in the Department of Mathematics, forming part of the chair of Analysis and Geometry, headed by Dr. Kai Cieliebak. In October 2018, I obtained my PhD (Dr. Rer. Nat.) in Humboldt Universität zu Berlin, in Berlin, Germany, in the Department of Mathematics, under the supervision of Dr. Chris Wendl, and by affiliation with the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS). Those studies were started in University College London (UCL), London, UK, where I studied for two years of the PhD programme, and attended courses and seminars of the London School of Geometry and Number Theory (LSGNT). My PhD thesis is available here.

In 2014, I obtained my Master’s degree in the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK, after completion of Part III of the Mathematical Tripos, by affiliation with Trinity College and membership with the Trinity Mathematical Society, and under supervision of Dr. Gabriel Paternain. My Bachelor’s degree was obtained in 2012, in Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de La República (UDELAR), Montevideo, Uruguay, under the supervision of Dr. Miguel Paternain.

I am also a cellist, and have performed regularly as soloist, in orchestras, or in various ensembles. See here for some musical projects, past and present. When I am not doing maths, out in conferences, or playing music, I am reading books, going to concerts, snowboarding, or leisurely traveling the world.
