I am currently a professor of physics and applied math at Universidad Industrial de Santander, in Bucaramanga, Colombia (2017-present), and my main research interest is extragalactic astronomy. I pursued my PhD in Science with emphasis in astronomy from the University of Sao Paulo in 2016, working with computer simulations of galaxies. I enjoy moving in the intersection between astronomy, math, and data science, and I have spent time at different institutions in Chile, Germany and France through fully-funded research internships (2011-2017). In the past I acted as the leader of the Colombian team in several international Math Olympiads (2006-2016). Science education and outreach is my other passion.
