Curriculum Vitae

ABOUT ME

I am a Minerva Research Foundation Member of the Special Year on Variational Methods in Geometry at the Institute for Advanced Study. I was a graduate student in Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, where I received my PhD in May 2018.  My advisor was Ian Agol.
My interests are Geometry and Topology.  I passed my qual on March 20, 2014. Here is the transcript of what I was asked.
I also graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in 2011 with a BA .  I am originally from Lima, Perú.
In Summer 2018 I lead a research group for a Research Experience for Undergraduates, focusing on Fundamental Domains of Hyperbolic 3-manifolds.
Starting Fall 2019 I will be a Gibbs Assistant Professor at Yale University. I will be teaching MATH 310 (Introduction to Complex Analysis) and MATH 732 (Minimal and CMC Surfaces in Hyperbolic 3-Manifolds).
