Research

My research interests are mainly algebra and algebraic geometry. More specifically, I am interested in the theory of algebraic groups, invariant theory, Galois cohomology and essential dimension. I work under the supervision of Prof. Zinovy Reichstein.

I have also done some research in other areas of mathematics. My masters' thesis at the University of Havana was focused on the solvability of transcendental equations in commutative C*-algebras. Here is a copy of my thesis: pdf (in Spanish).

Teaching

I am currently a teaching assistant in the Department of Mathematics at UBC. My typical duties include drop-in tutoring, marking assignments, exam invigilations and teaching my own section of a course. Before that, I was an instructor of mathematics at the University of Havana for two years.

Here is a link to my current TA duties.
