Biography and Education

I am originally from Valera, a town in the Venezuelan Andes. I have been at Texas State since 2019. Before that, my academic homes (in reverse chronological order) where UMass and UCLA, with shorter stays at the Fields Institute, the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute, and the Institute for Advanced Study. I obtained my PhD at UT Austin in 2010 and my Licenciatura en Matemáticas at Universidad Simón Bolívar in 2006.

Research Interests
