' Too many times we are asked to check ourselves at the door ... our passions, our culture, our identity. Here, you can be yourself. '

Outside of mathematics,

I love to travel, draw, and spend time with friends and family. The first thing I do when going someplace new is look up the local food. Caffeine surrounds me when I am working on mathematics and most of the time I'm in my office.


From Coimbra to La Habana, life's too short to live without walking (and doing mathematics) with people from all places and backgrounds.

In another life, I was a starving artist.

Above all, sharing traveling (and food) moments with loved ones is my passion.
