About me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering of the Catholic University of Chile.  I have also been a visiting researcher in the Algorithms Group at Google since July 2023.

My main research interests are the complexity theory of convex optimization (deterministic and stochastic). This research also relates importantly to some aspects of machine learning theory and private data analysis.  I am also  interested in understanding incentives and equilibria from game-theoretic perspectives.

I obtained an Engineering degree (Applied Math M.Sc. equivalent) from the Mathematical Engineering Department of Universidad de Chile, and a Ph.D. in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization at Georgia Tech.
