Short Bio

I was born in Bucaramanga , a medium size city in the interior of Colombian, surrounded by Andean's mountains. On high school, I was a problem solving enthusiastic and active member of the Colombian Math Olympiad. This encouraged me to study a Bsc in Mathemathics at Universidad de Los Andes. By the end of my undergraduate program, I was particularly interested on numerical methods and optimization, and decided to continue a career on Applied Math. The master program at IMPA (na cidade maravilhosa do Rio de Janeiro) was an excellent transition from my pure math background to Computer Science, and specifically to Computer Graphics. At IMPA I was a member of the Visgraf Lab and advised by professor Diego Nehab. After finishing my MSc I moved to Johns Hopkins on Fall of 2013 where I am PhD student advised by professor Michael Kazhdan.


On my free time I am a player of the JHU-CS grad soccer team (two times intramural champions!), a lationamerican traditional novel reader (Vargas Llosa, Allende, Marquez), and a music explorator.


I have been intern at Microsoft Research (Redmond, WA) under supervision of Hugues Hoppe on the summers of 2015 and 2016. Besides working on improving the tracking, compression and reconstruction quality of textured meshes, I had the chance to score this nice goal.
