I am Associated Professor in the Departament de Física i Enginyeria Nuclear in the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in the research group on Nonlinear Dynamics, Nonlinear Optics and Lasers (DONLL).
My research is focused in dynamical complex systems. A main research line is in nonlinear photonics, and in particular, in the nonlinear dynamics of semiconductor lasers. Another research line is focused on symbolic time series analysis, applied to the study of stochastic and high-dimensional complex systems, such as the climate and systems with time delays (for example, semiconductor lasers with feedback).
I received my Bachelor (1989) and MSc (1991) degrees in physics from Universidad de la República, Uruguay. I received my PhD (1999) degree in physics from Bryn Mawr College (BMC), Pennsylvania, USA.
Before joining UPC in 2004, from 1986 to 2004 I was at the Instituto de Física, Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de la República, Uruguay, where I was a Teaching Assistant (1986-1993), an Assistant Professor (1993-2003) and an Associated Professor (2003-2004).
