I am a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Swansea University. My research interests are applied algebraic geometry, and commutative algebra, in particular, their applications for solving problems arising in geometric modeling and Computer Aided Geometric Design (CAGD). Here is a list of my publications. Previously, from 2013 to 2017, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Group of Symbolic Computation at RICAM, in Linz, Austria.

## Education:

Ph.D., Mathematics, University of Oslo, Norway, 2013.

M.Sc., Mathematics, University of Bordeaux 1, France, 2007

Leiden University, The Netherlands, 2006

Erasmus Mundus Master ALGANT: ALgebra, Geometry And Number Theory.

B.Sc., Mathematics, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, 2005.

*I also studied Microbiology for one year (2000-2001) at the Universidad de Pamplona, Colombia.
