Postdoctoral Researcher at Seoul National University

I recently completed a PhD in Physics at the National University of La Plata, Argentina, under the supervision of Diego Correa. My research interests are in Theoretical Physics and my thesis is entitled "Integrability in the AdS/CFT correspondence".

In 2011 I graduated with the highest grade from the National University of La Plata as a Licenciado en Fisica, equivalent to an MSc.in Physics. My master's thesis was entitled "Open spin chains and integrability" and was done under the supervision of Diego Correa.
