About me

Currently, I am a visiting assistant professor in the Texas A&M mathematics department, where I participate in the Algebra and Combinatorics Seminar. I received my Ph.D. from Universidad Nacional de Cordoba (FaMAF-CIEM), Argentina in 2013 under the supervision of Sonia Natale. I completed a CONICET postdoc at IMAS-Universidad de Buenos Aires and CIEM-FaMAF under the supervision of Maria Julia Redondo and Martin Mombelli.
My research focuses in category theory and noncommutative algebra. I am particularly interested in fusion and modular categories, their classification and applications to physics. I also study Hopf algebras and quantum groups and their representation theories.

Here is a copy of my CV.
Here is a link to my articles on the arXiv.
