### About me

I am an assistant professor at the Departamento de Matemáticas at Universidad Andrés Bello (UNAB) in Santiago, Chile. Between 2016 and 2020, I hold a Fondecyt Regular Grant together with José Zamora Before coming to UNAB, I was a postdoctoral fellow (funded by Fondecyt Project 3100097) at the Centro de Modelamiento Matemático, University of Chile. Between September and December 2009, I was a Junior Research Fellow at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematical Physics in Vienna, Austria.

I obtained my Ph.D. from University of Chile and University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (joint program). My advisors were: Alejandro Maass from U. Chile and Jean-Marc Gambaudo (U. Nice). I also hold an engineer title from University of Chile. My engineering’s memoire was supervised by Felipe Alvarez.

I contribute to the GNOME Project. I code mostly for Evince and Gedit. In particular, I am the maintainer of the LaTeX and SyncTeX plugins for Gedit, which allow LaTeX and SyncTeX integration between Gedit and Evince.

### Research Interests

More recently I have been interested in algebraic combinatorics. I am studying two graph invariants: The chromatic symmetric function and the weighted graph polynomials. I want to understand what can be said about the underlying graph by using only the information encoded by these invariants.

Before being interested in combinatorics, I worked on topological dynamics and ergodic theory. In particular, I studied the dynamics of systems arising from non-periodic tilings and Delone sets. There I studied extensions of the classical theory of circle homeomorphisms to the non-periodic settings, obtaining several generalizations of the celebrated Poincaré theorem.
