About Me

Curriculum Vitae

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics of the University of Toronto, working with Prof. Marco Gualtieri.

I have two Bachelor's degrees from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, a PhD in Physics from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania.

I also worked for a time in the CMS collaboration, one of the detectors of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. We found the Higgs boson!

On a more personal note, I play chess, dabble with web design (I handcoded this webpage using only a text editor), play several music instruments (guitar, piano and Galician bagpipes, at various levels of proficiency) and have started making stained glass art with my wife.


Research

In my Ph.D. thesis I prove a generalization of the nonabelian Hodge theorem to twisted torsors on smooth projective varieties over the complex numbers. A writeup will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can:

A few keywords that reflect some of my current research interests are:
