About meI am an assistant professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. My research area is combinatorial optimization and analysis of algorithms. In particular I work in approximation and online algorithms for scheduling and network design problems. I currently participate in the project Nucleo Milenio "Información y Coordinación en Redes".
I was previously a Post-doc at the University of Chile, funded by a Fondecyt Postdoctoral Grant (2013-2014). I received my Phd at TU Berlin (2012) under the supervision of Martin Skutella. Title: The power of recourse in online optimization [pdf]. Previously, I received a Master in Applied Math (Ingeniería Matemática) at University of Chile.
- I'm in the committee of WAOA 2014
- I'm in the committee of MAPSP 2015
- I recently got a Fondecyt Project for Initiation in Research titled: "Approximation algorithms for load balancing problems via local properties"
