I am fifth year PhD Candidate in Mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin, under the supervision of Prof. Irene M. Gamba.

Previously, I got my Licenciatura en Ciencias Matemáticas Diploma from Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata, with the Licenciatura thesis "Direct and inverse sharp Young's inequality and its applications to Information theory", under the supervision of Prof. Irene M. Gamba and Prof. Sandra Molina. (If you know Spanish, you can read it here.)

You can find my CV here.

Research interests

I am interested in analysis aspects of kinetic theory, in particular in the Boltzmann equation. I am currently working on the system of Boltzmann equations for a mixture of monatomic gases, with my advisor and Prof. Milana Pavić-Čolić..
