About Me


I am currently an assistant professor of physics at York University in Toronto, Canada. My research is primarily focused on classical and quantum gravity, black holes, cosmology, and quantum field theory.


You can check out my academic profile on InspireHEP or download my full CV.

Prior to my current position, from 2018 to 2019, I was an assistant professor at Monterrey Institute of Technology (ITESM)
, Campus Leon, Guanajuato, in Mexico. Before that, from 2014 to 2018, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Department of Physics at Metropolitan Autonomous University (Universidad Autonoma Metrpolitana - Iztapalapa) in Mexico City, working with Prof. Hugo Morales-Técotl, and, from 2012 to 2014, a postdoctoral fellow at Centro de Ciencias Matematicas, UNAM, Campus Morelia, in Mexico, working with Prof. Alejandro Corichi.

I did my PhD in quantum gravity at Universidad de la Republica in Uruguay under the supervision of Prof. Rodolfo Gambini and collaborating with Prof. Jorge Pullin of the Louisiana State University, and graduated with distinction.
