Who I am and what I do

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics of IME-USP, the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics at University of São Paulo, Brazil. I work in Differential Geometry with focus on higher geometric structures and connections with Mathematical Physics. More information about my research can be found here.

I am a member of the Geometry Research Group of USP. Together with my colleague Ivan Struchiner, we organize a weekly seminar on Poisson Geometry, Lie groupoids and their interaction with Geometry, Topology and Mathematical Physics. Please check these activities here.

Short CV

I received a PhD degree in Mathematics from IMPA in April 2009 under the supervision of Henrique Bursztyn. I also had a postdoctoral position at IMPA where I was a member of the Mathematical Physics research group of that institution.

Last semester of 2010 I received a Junior Research Fellowship from ESI - The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematical Physics, in Vienna, Austria. Also, during January and February 2012 I was a fellow of the “Summer Postdoctoral Program” of IMPA.

Additionally, during my doctoral studies I spent six months as an MRI fellow within the Master Class Program “Symplectic Geometry and Beyond” at Utrecht University, Holland.

Previously, I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematics at University of Chile in Santiago, where I am originally from.
