As of Fall'17 I will be an Assistant Professor at Universidad de los Andes! My webpage will be migrating soon.

Research interests

My research area is algebraic combinatorics. More specifically I work with combinatorial objects like graphs, matroids, Young tableaux, etc. and study potential Hopf algebra structures on them from different perspectives (enumerative, representation theoretically, geometric, algebraic).


Take a look at my CV if you wish.
