ABOUT ME

I am originally from Cuernavaca, Mexico.  I have lived abroad (UK and US) since I finished college in Mexico.  Currently, I am an assistant professor at Baruch College, CUNY.  Before that, I was an Andrei Zelevinsky postdoctoral research instructor at Northeastern University.  I enjoy a good cup of coffee and an occasional Math Olympiad problem.

"Just as every human undertaking pursues certain objects, so also mathematical research requires its problems. It is by the solution of problems that the investigator tests the temper of his steel; he finds new methods and new outlooks, and gains a wider and freer horizon."

David Hilbert, 1900
