About Me

My main research interests lie in the areas of numerical analysis, scientific computing and computational physics. Currently I work developing numerical methods for problems arising in the computational simulation of magnetically confined plasmas. I have also interest in the application of integral equation techniques for the study of time domain wave propagation, in the applications and theoretical development of the Boundary Element Method (BEM) and the Hybridizable Discontinuous Galerkin Method (HDG), and in formulations that involve the coupling of integral and partial differential equations.

Short Bio

I was born and raised in Mexico City. I got a B.Sc. in Physics (under the supervision of Iouri N. Skiba ) and a M.Sc. in Mathematics (under the supervision of Antonio Capella) both from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I graduated with a Ph. D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Delaware, where I studied under the supervision of the late Francisco-Javier Sayas. Between 2016 and 2020 I was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, where my mentor was Antoine Cerfon.

In 2018, as part of the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration of the contributions of Latinx and Hispanic mathematicians, I was featured by as a prominent early-career Hispanic mathematician. I am humbled and thankful for the honor.

Fall 2020: MATH 125 (Calculus I) Section 007

IMPORTANT: The class is scheduled to meet online at the beginning of the semester and transition into presential lectures following a data-based approach which will include expert advice from faculty in our Zuckerman College of Public Health. After the Thanksgiving break, the class will switch back to online instruction from November 26, 2020 until December 9, 2020.

  • Meeting time: Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 A.M. --- 12:15 P.M.
  • Meeting place: Emil W. Haury Anthropology Building, Room 216. (NOTE: Due to COVID-19 related restrictions, the class will be online until further notice.)
  • Office hours: Tuesday: 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM // Thursday 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

You can find answers for frequently asked questions (required textbook, recommended/allowed calculators, WebAssign, etc.) and plenty of useful resources (reference sheets, reviews, videos, practice exams, etc.) in the
