I am associate professor at the Department of Mathematics of Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. I work at the UPC research group on Discrete, Combinatorial and Computational Geometry. I did my PhD at Utrecht University, under the supervision of Marc van Kreveld. Before going to Utrecht for my PhD, I studied at the Computer Science Department of the *Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales*, Universidad de Buenos Aires.

## Research interests

I work mainly on **Computational Geometry**, an area between computer science and mathematics concerned with finding efficient **algorithms** for geometric problems (problems involving geometric objects, such as points, lines, or triangles). I have worked on several different areas of Computational and **Combinatorial Geometry**, and I am particularly interested in problems that are motivated from **Geographic Information Science (GIS)**. That is, problems originated from GIS applications that can be formulated as geometric problems, and where tools from computational geometry can be applied. I am also interested in **Graph Drawing**, an area that studies algorithms to compute *nice* drawings of graphs (*nice* has to do with the idea of “aesthetically pleasant” drawings); it is a very interesting field related to information visualization, computational geometry and graph theory, among others.

For more information about my research, see my publications page.
