I am working as a JSPS Postdoctoral Researcher in Theoretical physics at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan). I started my career studying a Bachelor in Physics at Universidad de ConcepciĆ³n, Chile. After that, I realised that my interests were related to gravity and cosmology, so I continued my studies doing a Master of Science with a major in Physics in that topic. During my MSc I focused my studies on dynamical wormholes using General Relativity.

Once I finished my MSc, I worked for one and a half years as a Physics Teaching Fellow at Universidad de Los Lagos (Chile). After that, I got a Chilean scholarship (BECAS CHILE) to study a PhD in Mathematics at University College London (UCL), United Kingdom. In September 2018, I finished my PhD at UCL where I was mainly interested in gravity and cosmology.

After this, I worked as an Isaac/Ogden fellow in the School of Mathematics & Physics at the University of Lincoln (United Kingdom) as an outreach Physics coordinator, developing, coordinating and delivering Physics outreach activities with local schools/colleges both in the local area and nationally in collaboration with the Ogden Trust and the Isaac Physics Institute developed by the Department of Education at the University of Cambridge.

In January 2019, I got a Mobilitas Pluss Postdoctoral Fellowship given by the Estonian government to work as a Researcher fellow at the University of Tartu in Estonia. In 2021 I received a JSPS postdoctoral fellowship (Standard program) to work as a researcher at Tokyo Institute of Technology.

My main research has been related to modifications of Gerenal Relativity focusing on cosmology and also their applications to astrophysics projects such as black holes and wormholes.
