Welcome to my website!
I am a scientist with a Ph.D. in theoretical and computational Physics from the Instituto de Física y Matemáticas at the Universidad Michoacana de San Nicolás de Hidalgo (UMSNH), based in Morelia Mich., Mexico. In this place I previously got my M.Sc. also in Physics. Before to study in Mexico, I graduated from the Departmento de Física at the Universidad de Santiago de Chile (USACH), with a B.Sc. in Applied Physics.
My formal research fields are numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics. Motivated by the computational physics of gravitational waves, I have worked on theoretical and computer modeling of isolated systems, emission and generation of radiation due to perturbed black holes. I have also implemented computer simulations of compact stars. For these problems it is required a high training in general relativity, numerical analysis, and programming. I am research member of the Network of Black Holes and Gravitational Waves, funded by CONACYT, Mexico. Recently, I've become interested in applied mathematics, high-level programming languages and data analysis.
As a collateral pathway, for several years I have been exploring the relation between science and humanities, mainly around religious issues. I am the founder and director of the interdisciplinary peer-review journal Razón y Pensamiento Cristiano. I am the main initiator of the Ibero-American Network of Science and Faith, initiative that I coordinate as honorary member of the Centro de Ciencia y Fe, Spain, initially supported by The BioLogos Foundation, USA, and the Templeton World Charity Foundation, Bahamas.

After a long time, I updated my LinkedIn profile. Check it here »
I contributed to the Protestant Reformation 500th Anniversary with an article published on the RYPC journal. Read it here »
I was invited to write about a controversial issue in Chile, namely gender identity. Text in Spanish available here »
In Oct 2016 I gave a talk in faith and science course in Santiago, Chile, organized by GBUCh-IFES and the Faraday Institute, University of Cambridge. More info here »
I wrote a brief review, in Spanish, about the first direct detection of gravitational waves. You can find it in my blog, clicking here »
