About me

I am a second year PhD Student at UCSC. My advisor is Professor C. Seshadhri. Before joining UCSC, I completed my MS in Computer Science at the University of Southern California. Before that, in Spain, I studied at the University of Malaga, where I completed a master in Software Engineering and AI, and a Bachelor in Industrial Engineering. My advisor at the University of Malaga was Professor Marlon Nunez.

My research interests are mostly in Theoretical Computer Science, I am currently working in Subgraph counting and Fine-Grained Complexity.
