Postdoctoral Researcher at Université Libre de Bruxelles

My research interests are in High-Energy Theoretical Physics, particularly in holography broadly understood. I completed my PhD in Physics in August 2016 at the National University of La Plata, Argentina, under the supervision of Diego Correa (my thesis was titled "Integrability in the AdS/CFT correspondence"). I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Basic Science (South Korea), from September 2016 to February 2018.
