Perfil del Investigador ANID 

Hello! Welcome to my personal webpage. 

I am an assistant professor at the School of Industrial Engineering, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. My research field is focused on operations research and operations management, with a specific interest in applied vehicle routing, facility location, and network design problems. My current research projects involve last-mile delivery, recyclable and organic waste collection, and network design.

In addition to these projects, I'm also interested in research areas such as Milk collection, HAZMAT transport, Humanitarian Logistics, Production Planning, etc.


I obtained MSc. and Ph.D. degrees in Engineering Sciences at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), Santiago, Chile. Before going to PUC, I obtained an Industrial Engineer title at Universidad del Bío-Bío, Concepción, Chile.


As an important part of my education, I was very fortunate to have a number of valuable research experiences:
