Update: I am pleased to announce that, starting Jan 1st 2016, I will join the faculty of the ECE Department at Johns Hopkins University.
I am looking for highly motivated and self-driven MS/PhD students and postdocs with a strong mathematical background in dynamical systems, control and optimization with interests on power networks.
I am a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for the Mathematics of Information (CMI) in the Computational and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) department at Caltech. I earned my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics from Cornell University in 2014. In the summer of 2011, I had the opportunity of working as a research intern at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center.
I was born in the beautiful city of Montevideo, in Uruguay. I completed my undergraduate studies in Telecommunications Engineering at Universidad ORT, Uruguay, in 2005. From 2004 to 2007, I worked as an IT-Specialist at IBM, and in 2008 I became an engineer in the Traffic Engineering Department of ANTEL, the main telecommunications operator in Uruguay. I also worked as a Teaching and Research Assistant in the Department of Telecommunications at Universidad ORT, and I was a member of the MATE research group.
I am mostly interested in the study of network dynamics and distributed systems, as well as their applications in engineering and science. Using tools from control, dynamical systems and optimization, I describe the global behavior of these networks and how they can be modified to meet specific engineering requirements.
Below is a list of my main research topics:
Following are a few of my publications, but the full list can be found here.
