I have an undergraduate, a master degree and a Ph.D. in Mathematics all from Puc-Rio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In my masters I studied applications of the tensor product in numerical linear algebra. I defended my Ph.D. thesis in February 2009, and it is about sampling methods for chance constrained. I spent one year of my Ph.D as a Research Scholar at the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Tech, under the supervision of professors Shabbir Ahmed. and Alexander Shapiro. Professor Carlos Tomei was my adviser in the Masters and in the Ph.D. Currently I am an Associate Professor at the Business School at Universidad Adolfo Ibañez, Santiago, Chile. In 2013 I co-founded a company (with Felipe Walker) called GameLab, that develops digital games for the classroom. More information can be found here.
