About me


I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Business at Universidad Adolfo Ibañez and member of the Operations group at the same institution.


My main research interest is Optimization, particularly theory and applications of mixed-integer programming (MIP).



I was an Assistant Professor in the Grado Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech from Fall 2014 until Summer 2016.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Operations Research at ISyE - Georgia Tech.  Before going to Georgia Tech, I obtained a Mathematical Engineering title (master equivalent) and a Master in Operations Management from Universidad de Chile



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

  • At Georgia Tech, my advisor Santanu S. Dey and I studied some theoretical properties of general convex MIPs. In this project we collaborated with Juan Pablo Vielma.
  • At the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, I worked as a Summer intern with Sanjeeb Dash and Oktay Günlük on studying theoretical properties of cutting planes for MIPs and some of its algorithmic implications.
