My research interests include combinatorial problems, in particular scheduling problems, and approximation algorithms analysis and design, specially with applications related to control and energy/power management. Additionally, I'm interested in general convex optimization, machine learning, and operations research problems with real-life applications.
I hold a BS in Electrical Engineering/Industrial Engineering (double major) and MS in Control Systems at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and a PhD from the Industrial Engineering & Operations Research Department at Columbia University. During my Ph.D. I worked with professors Garud Iyengar and Cliff Stein, building algorithms for several energy management related optimization problems.
