About me

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Operations Research program at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Georgia Tech.

My advisors are Mohit Singh and Sebastian Pokutta. We are currently working on developing algorithms for problems related to online submodular maximization, as well as, the application of these in text-summarization.

During my first two years in the Ph.D. program, I worked with Alejandro Toriello (co-advisor) and Shabbir Ahmed on the online bipartite matching problem.

I obtained a Mathematical Engineering degree (Applied Math M.Sc. equivalent) from the Mathematical Engineering Department of Universidad de Chile, with Roberto Cominetti as advisor.
