I am a second year PhD student in the School of Computer Science at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. My supervisor is Bruce Shepherd. I obtained my MA in Mathematics and Statistics from McGill University, and my BSc in Mathematics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Madrid, Spain. My main research interests are in Discrete Optimization, in particular in the areas of Approximation Algorithms and Submodular Optimization.

I am the organizer of the DMO seminar at McGill University. If you are interested in giving a talk at McGill, please contact me.
