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 selfdriven 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 ITSpecialist 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. Research InterestsI 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:
