I am Assistant Professor at the Institut Fourier, Université Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble (Pronouns: he/him or they/them).

From January 2013 to December 2014, I was Assistant Professor at the Mathematics Departement, FCEyN, UBA (Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Universidad de Buenos Aires), Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a research member of the CONICET, Argentina.

From March 2010 to November 2011 I was an Alexander von Humboldt post-doc at the Universität Bielefeld, Bielefeld, Germany.

Concerning my undergraduate studies, I did my Master thesis in Mathematics, entitled La homología de Hochschild-Mitchell de categorías lineales y su parecido con la homolgía de Hochschild de álgebras (Hochschild-Mitchell homology of linear categories and its resemblance with Hochschild homology of algebras), as well as my Master thesis in Physics, entitled Modelos de Wess-Zumino-Witten sobre \(\mathrm{SL}(2,\mathbb{R})\) y teoría de cuerdas (Wess-Zumino-Witten models on \(\mathrm{SL}(2,\mathbb{R})\) and string theory), at the Universidad de Buenos Aires.

I did my PhD thesis in Mathematics, Teoría de representaciones y homología de álgebras de Yang-Mills (Representation theory and homology of Yang-Mills algebras) at the Universidad de Buenos Aires. My advisor was Andrea Solotar.

I did my Habilitation à diriger des recherches, entitled Théorie des représentations et algèbre homologique (Representation theory and homological algebra), at the Institut Fourier, Université Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble.

You may find my CV here.
