About me

I am currently a postdoc at the Department of Mathematics of Facultad de Ciencias (Universidad de Chile). My mentor is Nicolás Libedinsky.

I received my PhD. on March 2017 at FaMAF & CIEM (CONICET) in Córdoba, Argentina, under the supervision of Carina Boyallian. Also under her supervision, I was a CONICET postdoctoral fellow in 2017-2019.

I completed my M.Sc. in Math. (Licenciatura en Matemática) in 2012 at UNS (Universidad Nacional del Sur) in Bahía Blanca, Argentina.

My research interests include representation theory of vertex (operator) algebras and Hecke algebras, (higher) category theory, categorification and Soergel bimodules.
