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, and I am the head of the UPC group on Computational Geometry and Applications (CGA). 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.
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.
