About me

Since Fall 2012, I am an assistant professor of applied mathematics at The University of Akron. Since Fall 2016, I also have a joint appointment in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

From June 2009 to August 2012, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the California Institute of Technology where I was a member of the Computational Solid Mechanics Group directed by Prof. Michael Ortiz.

In May 2009, I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Tufts University where I worked with Prof. Misha Kilmer. The dissertation title is "Multilevel Methods for Discrete Ill-Posed Problems: Application to Deblurring".

I studied Licenciatura (B.Sc.) in Mathematics at Universidad de Buenos Aires.

My research interests are in the areas of computational and applied mathematics, and in particular in numerical analysis and numerical linear algebra. My research consists of designing and analyzing numerical methods for problems arising in solid mechanics, materials science, and image processing. For more details go to Research.

I am a 2013-2014 Project NExT Fellow.

Here is my CV.
