Me at Avebury
I am a profesor asistente at the Departamento de Ingeniería Matemática of the Universidad de Concepción. Until recently I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Centro de Investigación en Ingeniería Matemática (CI2MA) of the Universidad de Concepción and before that I did my doctorate at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford under the supervision of Endre Süli.

Research interests
  • Numerical approximation of high-dimensional PDE.
  • Numerical approximation of degenerate PDE.
  • Numerical approximation of problems from continuum mechanics.
  • Functional analysis and function spaces.
  • Finite Element methods (primal and mixed formulations).
  • Spectral methods.
