About me

I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Washington, working with Julia Pevtsova. Before moving to Seattle, I was a postdoc at Iowa State University with Shlomo Gelaki.

I completed my PhD at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, Argentina, in 2020 under the supervision of Nicolás Andruskiewitsch. I also held a brief postdoc in Córdoba with Iván Angiono before coming to Iowa State.

My main research interests are Hopf algebras and tensor categories. My formation is in Nichols algebras, which are generalizations of positive parts of quantum groups and somehow give a unifying framework for several constructions in quantum Lie theory.

Currently, I am mostly working on tensor categories in positive characteristic, and on applications of Nichols algebras and their representation theory (e.g. non-semisimple modular categories and knot invariants).
