Research interests: Nonlinear dispersive equations, in particular: collisions, well-posedness, stability and asymptotic
stability and blow-up.
*

I obtained a Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin, under the advise
of Yvan
Martel (Video) and Frank Merle (Video 1,
Video 2).

2nd. Workshop on Nonlinear
Evolution Equations in
Valdivia, to be held at Universidad Austral de Chile, Valdivia, on December 12-16 2016.

Partially funded by ERC Blowdisol, CAPDE Nucleo Milenio, CMM
and
EEQUADD MathAmSud Collaboration.

I'm an associate researcher in the CAPDE collaboration, lead by
Manuel del Pino. We
run a biweekly seminar:
*
CAPDE Seminar 2015
*

I was also organizer of the PDE session
at Somachi 2015.

I'm also part of the organizing comitee at CLAM 2016 Nonlinear dispersive equations session, taking
place in Colombia between July 11-15 2016.

I'm also part of the MathAmSud collaboration EEQUADD 2016-2017.
