About me

I am a postdoc of the Chaire X-Uber “Integrated Urban Mobility”, backed by L'X -École Polytechnique and La Fondation de l'École polytechnique and sponsored by Uber, working under Claudia D'Ambrosio. Visit this link for more details.

I received my PhD in Mathematics from the Universidad de Murcia (Spain) in October 2019. My PhD thesis was entitled “Set packing, location and related problems” and supervised by Prof. Alfredo Marín. I took my master's degree in Mathematics with major in Statistics and Operations Research (2015-2016) and a double BS degree in Mathematics and Informatics Engineering (2010-2015) at the Universidad de Murcia.
