About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering of the Catholic University of Chile. My research interests are Convex Optimization, Machine Learning Theory and Differential Privacy.

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

I obtained a Ph.D. in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization at Georgia Tech. My advisors were Arkadi Nemirovski and Sebastian Pokutta.

After graduating, I was a postdoc in the Networks & Optimization Group at CWI-Amsterdam.
