(A full CV can be found here).
I come originally from Colombia, where I did my undergraduate in Electronic Engineering at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana, in Medellín. In 2005, I was awarded a scholarship from the Swiss Government to pursue a MAS in Embedded Systems Design at ALaRI, University of Lugano. After graduation, I got a position as graduate assistant at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lausanne, where I completed my Ph.D (Applied Mathematics for the Human and Social Sciences) in 2012. From early 2012 to mid 2013 I was a postdoc at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Basel under the joint supervision of Georg Nöldeke and Laurent Lehmann; concurrently I was a member of Lehmann Group at the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Lausanne. In mid 2013 I was awarded a grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation to join Arne Traulsen and his research group (now Department of Evolutionary Theory) at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, where I was a postdoc until September 2016. From October 2016, I am a member of Oscar Puebla‘s research group at the Geomar Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel.
