I am a Profesor Principal at the School of Engenieering, Science, and Technology of Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Unicamp) in the Gauge Theory and Algebraic Geometry group of the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computing under the supervision of Marcos Jardim. Before Brazil, I held several positions: I have been an instructor at Universidad del Norte in Barranquilla, a Postdoctoral Researcher at Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá, and a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara under David R. Morrison. I graduated from the University of Utah in May 2015 with a PhD in Mathematics. I wrote my dissertation in Algebraic Geometry under the supervision of Aaron Bertram.

### Research

I am interested in Derived Categories, Bridgeland Stability Conditions, Moduli Spaces of Sheaves, and in general, mathematics inspired by Physics. I have worked on preservation of stability under Fourier-Mukai transforms, construction of stability conditions on higher dimensional varieties and the study of the birational geometry of moduli spaces of sheaves via wall-crossing techniques.

With G. Comaschi, M. Jardim, and D. Mu. Instantons: the next frontier: Instantons, emerged in particle physics, have been intensely studied since the 1970's and had an enormous impact in mathematics since then. In this paper, we focus on one particular way in which mathematical physics has guided the development of algebraic geometry in the past 40+ years. To be precise, we examine how the notion of mathematical instanton bundles in algebraic geometry has evolved from a class of vector bundles over the complex projective 3-space both to a class of torsion free sheaves on projective varieties of arbitrary dimension, and to a class of objects in the derived category of Fano threefolds. The original results contained in this survey focus precisely on the latter direction; in particular, we prove that the classical rank 2 instanton bundles over the projective 3-space are indeed instanton objects for any suitable chamber in the space of Bridgeland stability conditions. arXiv.

With J. Lo. Geometric stability conditions under autoequivalences and applications: Elliptic Surfaces: On a Weierstrass elliptic surface, we describe the action of the relative Fourier-Mukai transform on the geometric chamber of Stab(X), and in the K3 case we also study the action on one of its boundary components. Using new estimates for the Gieseker chamber we prove that Gieseker stability for polarizations on certain Friedman chamber is preserved by the derived dual of the relative Fourier-Mukai transform. As an application of our description of the action, we also prove projectivity for some moduli spaces of Bridgeland semistable objects. arXiv.

With M. Jardim and A. Maciocia. Vertical Asymptotics for Bridgeland Stability Conditions on Threefolds: Let X be a smooth projective threefold of Picard number one for which the generalized Bogomlov-Gieseker inequality holds. We characterize the limit Bridgeland semistable objects at large volume in the vertical region of the geometric stability conditions associated to X in complete generality and provide examples of asymptotically semistable objects. In the case of the projective space and ch^β(E)=(−R,0,D,0), we prove that there are only a finite number of nested walls in the (α,s)-plane. Moreover, when R=0 the only semistable objects in the outermost chamber are the 1-dimensional Gieseker semistable sheaves, and when β=0 there are no semistable objects in the innermost chamber. In both cases, the only limit semistable objects of the form E or E[1] (where E is a sheaf) that do not get destabilized until the innermost wall are precisely the (shifts of) instanton sheaves.

With W. Liu and J. Lo. Fourier-Mukai Transforms and Stable Sheaves on Weierstrass Elliptic Surfaces: On a Weierstrass elliptic surface X, we define a `limit' of Bridgeland stability conditions, denoted as Z^l-stability, by varying the polarisation along a curve in the ample cone. We describe conditions under which a slope stable torsion-free sheaf is taken by a Fourier-Mukai transform to a Z^l-stable object, and describe a modification upon which a Z^l-semistable object is taken by the inverse Fourier-Mukai transform to a slope semistable torsion-free sheaf. We also study wall-crossing for Bridgeland stability, and show that 1-dimensional twisted Gieseker semistable sheaves are taken by a Fourier-Mukai transform to Bridgeland semistable objects. Submitted. arXiv.

With B. Schmidt. Bridgeland stability on blow-ups and counterexamples (with an appendix by Omprokash Das): We give further counterexamples to the conjectural construction of Bridgeland stability on threefolds due to Bayer, Macrì, and Toda. This includes smooth projective threefolds containing a divisor that contracts to a point, and Weierstraß elliptic Calabi-Yau threefolds. Furthermore, we show that if the original conjecture, or a minor modification of it, holds on a smooth projective threefold, then the space of stability conditions is non-empty on the blow up at an arbitrary point. More precisely, there are stability conditions on the blow up for which all skyscraper sheaves are semistable. Mathematische Zeitschrift, 2018, DOI 10.1007/s00209-018-2149-3. arXiv.

With A. Bertram. Change of polarization for moduli of sheaves on surfaces as Bridgeland wall-crossing: We prove that the "Thaddeus flips" of L-twisted sheaves constructed by Matsuki and Wentworth can be obtained via Bridgeland wall-crossing. Similarly, we realize the change of polarization for moduli spaces of 1-dimensional Gieseker semistable sheaves on a surface by varying a family of stability conditions.

Duality, Bridgeland wall-crossing and flips of secant varieties: Let v_d⊂ℙH^0(O(d)) denote the d-uple Veronese surface. After studying some general aspects of the wall-crossing phenomena for stability conditions on surfaces, we are able to describe a sequence of flips of the secant varieties of v_d by embedding the blow-up of ℙH^0(O(d)) along v_d into a suitable moduli space of Bridgeland semistable objects on the complex projective plane.

With A. Bertram and J. Wang. The birational geometry of moduli spaces of sheaves on the projective plane: We describe a close relation between wall crossings in the birational geometry of moduli space of Gieseker stable sheaves M(v) on the complex projective plane and mini-wall crossings in the stability manifold Stab(P^2).
