I'm a theoretical physicist.  I was trained in high-energy theory (particle physics and cosmology).  In recent years my research interests have extended into other areas, especially dynamical systems and thermodynamics.
I've been professor of physics at the University of Costa Rica (UCR) since 2013.  I'm also a member of the Costa Rican National Academy of Sciences (ANC) since 2015.
