Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.‘ ~ Mark Twain

Who am I?

I am the W. M. Rice Trustee Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University. In 2016 I completed my PhD at The University of Pennsylvania in the department of Electrical and Systems Engineering with Prof. Alejandro Ribeiro as my advisor. After that, I spent almost two years as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society at MIT. Before moving to the U.S. for my graduate studies, I lived in Argentina, where I received my Industrial Engineering Bachelor Degree from the Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires (ITBA) in 2011. My research interests include: Network Theory, Optimization, Machine Learning, and Signal Processing.

What will you find here?

The idea of this website is to summarize my work as well as briefly introduce some aspects of my personal life. To achieve this, the Teaching section provides information about courses I taught or that I am teaching at Rice. I also provide a full list of my Publications, a few examples of Talks that I delivered, and a description of ongoing Projects. The Personal section, on the other hand, contains some information about my hobbies and interests outside the university.
