About me

I am a PhD student at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and Carleton University, supervised by Rodrigo Silveira and Prosenjit Bose. Before starting my PhD, I did my Master in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering at UPC in Barcelona and my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics at UNAM in Mexico city.

My main interests are Graph Theory, Computational Geometry, Combinatorics and Algorithms. My PhD is focused in graph theoretical and algorithmic properties of geometric graphs, most precisely in graphs of Delaunay type. I have also worked on Rainbow matchings in sparse graphs and finding Hamiltonian cycles in generalized semi-complete digraphs.
