About me

I'm a Costa Rican mathematician working as a postdoc at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). More precisely, I'm a Collaborateur Scientifique at the EPFL's Chair of Algebraic Geometry under the direction of Prof. Zsolt Patakfalvi.

I'm currently interested in positive characteristic algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, with a special interest in their interaction with their characteristic zero counterparts.

I obtained my Ph.D. degree in August of 2018 at the University of Utah under the supervision of Karl Schwede. I defended my Ph.D. thesis in April 2018 under the title "Arithmetic Aspects of Strong F-regularity." I obtained my bachelor's degree at the Universidad de Costa Rica in 2013. I graduated from the Colegio Científico Costarricense (Puntarenas) in 2007, which sparked my passion for mathematics.
