I am a PhD student in Complex Systems Simulation at the ICSS.

BACKGROUND In 2010, I got an undergraduate degree equivalent to a Bachelor in Sciences, at the Universidad de Tarapacá in Arica, Chile. In 2013 I got a Masters degree in Physics at the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María in Valparaíso, Chile.

INTERESTS I am currently working in magnetism, studying skyrmions in magnetic systems at the nanoscale.
