I am a postdoc at the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) at Universidad de Chile. Previously, I was a research member at the Simons-Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute (SLMath, formerly MSRI) as part of the Fall 2023 program "Mathematics and Computer Science of Market and Mechanism Design."
In July 2024, I will join the College of Management of Technology at EPFL as an assistant professor.
In 2023 I completed my PhD in the Department of Industrial Engineering at Universidad de Chile, and I was fortunate to be advised by José Correa and Paul Dütting. Prior to that, I graduated as a mathematical engineer and an MS in Operations Management at Universidad de Chile.
My research interests lie in the intersection of Algorithmic Game Theory, Mechanism Design, and Sequential Decision-Making. I am also interested in Approximation Algorithms. Some specific topics I work on include School Choice, Prophet Inequalities, and Combinatorial Auctions.

Our paper "Prophet Inequalities Require Only a Constant Number of Samples" was accepted for STOC'24!
Our paper "A constant-factor prophet inequality for online combinatorial auctions" was accepted for STOC'23.
Our paper "Sample-driven optimal stopping: From the secretary problem to the i.i.d. prophet inequality" was accepted for publication in Mathematics of Operations Research.
I was featured on the Meta Research website as part of the Fellowship Spotlight series :)
