Welcome to my site! Here you can find some of my research interests, teaching activities and materials of the past years, publications (article links and preprints), ongoing projects, conference presentations, and collaboration stays. I will try to keep this webpage as updated as possible, although, if you find that something is missing, please refer yourself to my profile on Google Scholar or ResearchGate.

I currently hold a permanent position with full-dedication as an Adjunct Professor of the Universidad de la República (UdelaR, Uruguay) at the Physics Institute in the Science Department (IFFC). I am also a level 3 Researcher for PEDECIBA, Uruguay. I was apponted as a Research Fellow of the University of Aberdeen (UoA, Scotland) at the Institute for Complex Systems and Mathematical Biology (ICSMB) from January 2015 until 2017. Previously, I worked at the IFFC from 2007 until 2010 as a Researcher Assistant doing Teaching Assistance and research within the Statistical Mechanics and Non-linear Physics Group (group webpage). During those years I taught laboratory courses on electronics and modern physics; impart tutorials on wave mechanics, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, and non-linear physics. During those years, I undertook internships at the Acusto-Optics Laboratory (acustoptica.fisica.edu.uy) and at the Laboratory of Instabilities in Fluids (fluidos.fisica.edu.uy).

I have a Ph.D. in Physics [2014] from the UoA and a M.Sc. [2010] and B.Sc. [2008] degrees from the UdelaR. My Ph.D. at the UoA started in October 2011 under the supervision of Murilo S. Baptista [1] and Celso Grebogi [2] in the ICSMB (www.abdn.ac.uk/icsmb) within Murilo's Group (group webpage). My dissertation was entitled "The mathematical principles behind the transmission of Energy and Synchronisation in Complex Networks" and was conferred with Honours. The thesis outcomes are framed within Complexity Sciences, involving exact and approximate results for the behaviour and stability of complex systems, and are valid for a wide range of complex systems, such as modern power-grid sytems. Before my Ph.D., I graduated from the B.Sc. in July 2008 and got my M.Sc. degree on "Synchronisation of coupled electronic oscillators" in July 2010 under the supervision of Arturo C. Martí [3] and Cecilia Cabeza. The thesis considered the case of an electronic oscillator model, implemented experimentally under a dual RC circuit, which could interact by means of light pulses as a firefly. We also studied the system analytically and numerically obtaining some general conclusions for generic piecewise oscillators.

My interests are focused on Complexity issues. In general, the complex systems that I research involve Coupled Dynamical Systems, where I try to measure, predict, and control their collective behaviour in terms of how they are inter-connected, namely, in terms of the topological features of the underlying networkl topology. I am also interested in Fluid Dynamics, specifically, in turbulence and numerical simulations of Navier-Stokes equations; in the mathematical properties of Non-linear Dynamical Systems, mainly in relation to bifurcation theory; in Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics, with a foucs on the statistical properties of the inter-spike intervals developed in semi-conductor Lasers with optical feedback; and finally, in Information Theory, with the aim of finding the right Markov partition for complex systems such that it contains the maximum information in the most simple encoding possible. Some of these topics I will surely be covering in the following years and I will be uploading documents to this site as I progress into these fascinating areas.
