When I finished my engineering studies, I realized that I wanted to know much more about the way modern science describes the world. I started from what I considered “the beginning”: space, time and the foundations of physics.

In order to understand all that, I had to study more mathematics, and I ended up doing a PhD in mathematical physics. Meanwhile, I taught math courses at Florida State University (Valencia Program) and assisted in math and physics courses at Universitat Politècnica de València. Before I got my predoctoral contract, I also worked in a geothermal engineering European project and I performed data analysis for social scientists.

Currently I have a position at Universidad de Guayaquil (Ecuador), where I came to develop a project on energy efficiency on campus. Although I remain deeply interested in fundamental physics, I want to shift towards more applied mathematics and the industrial R&D sector.

I am certified as "Assistant Professor" (Ayudante Doctor) by the Spanish Agency for Accreditation (ANECA).
