About me

I am an Assistant Professor at Departamento de Matemáticas of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá.

I am mainly interested in algebraic topology, currently I am working on the different models for (twisted) equivariant K-theory and K-homology as for example configuration spaces or Drinfeld doubles and on computational methods for the Isomorphism Conjectures, and its connections with non-commutative geometry and orbifolds invariants. Here my CV.

I got my PhD at Universidad de los Andes with Bernardo Uribe and in an initial phase with Thomas Schick (Here my thesis).
I was a postdoc at the Centro de Ciencias Matemáticas of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Campus Morelia. In Morelia I worked with Daniel Juan.
