I am an associate professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) since Jul 2022. I earned my Ph.D. in ECE with a minor in Applied Mathematics from Cornell University in Jan 2014, under the supervision of an awesome advisor and person, Prof. A. Kevin Tang. Before joining JHU as an assistant professor in Jan 2016, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for the Mathematics of Information (CMI) in the Computational and Mathematical Sciences (CMS) department at Caltech from 2013 to 2015, where I had the pleasure to be mentored by Prof. Steven Low and Prof. Adam Wierman.
I was born in the beautiful city of Montevideo, in Uruguay. I completed my undergraduate studies in Telecommunications Engineering at Universidad ORT, Uruguay, in 2005. From 2004 to 2007, I worked as an IT-Specialist at IBM, and in 2008 I became an engineer in the Traffic Engineering Department of ANTEL, the main telecommunications operator in Uruguay. I also was a summer intern in IBM T. J. Watson in 2011 and a teaching and research assistant member of the MATE research group in the Department of Telecommunications at Universidad ORT, Uruguay, from 2005 to 2008.
