I am an Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, PUC Chile. I received a D.Phil from the University of Oxford in 2013. I was previously studying at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile as an undergraduate student where I received a B.A. in Mathematics in 2006, a Professional Degree in Computer Engineering in 2008 and an M.Sc in 2008.

My research interests are mostly in databases, specifically, in data streams management systems, information extraction, and graph data management. Also, I do research in automata theory, logics and computational complexity.
