I am an assistant professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) since Jan 2016. 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, 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.
