I am a sixth year graduate student in mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley.  My advisor is Ian Agol.

My interests are Geometry and Topology.  I passed my qual on March 20, 2014. Here is the transcript of what I was asked.

I graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in 2011 with a BA .  I am originally from Lima, Perú.

I am the GSI of Math 16A sections 102, 104 and 107 for the present semester (Fall 2017). My office hours are Monday 2-3pm and Friday 1-2pm, starting 09/01.


Research:

Hyperbolic groups with few linear representations (A non-published argument of William Thurston)

Local convexity of renormalized volume for rank-1 cusped manifolds (arxiv)

Continuity of the renormalized volume under geometric limits (arxiv)


Teaching:

Math 16A Fall 2017

Math 10A Fall 2016
