All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die. - Sheryl Crow

For security reasons my full resume is available upon request.

In February 2023, I joined the RAND Corporation as a mathematician. Topics that I am interested in include the US intelligence community, the US Air Force, as well as of quantum technologies, specially post-quantum cryptography.

From December 2020 to January 2023, I was a quantum computational scientist at IBM Quantum in Yorktown Heights, NY. For the most part, I worked on the intersection between stochastic differential equations and quantum computing, with a view to applications in finance. In addition, I also handled the relationships with Global System Integrators as well as the JPMorgan Chase GTAR team and published exciting research with both of them on quantum machine learning.

While we're on the topic of milestones, I became a naturalized US citizen in August 2020.

From August 2018 to November 2020 I was a quantitative analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chicago, IL. Whatever happened to quantitative finance à la Shreve or à la Wilmott?!

From August 2015 to August 2018, I was a Doob postdoc in the Mathematics Department of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also worked as a research programmer at Wolfram and I was TA for Calc 3 at the Harvard summer program. Postdoc days were the happiest days of my life.

In May 2015, I finished my doctoral thesis in number theory at the Institut für Mathematik of UZH in Zurich, Switzerland. My supervisors were Alberto Cattaneo and Ashkan Nikeghbali and I was partially supported by the Forschungskredit grant K-71104-04-0. During the academic year 2013/14 I visited the University of California, Irvine, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I worked with Alexandru Zaharescu.


Before joining the I-Math I completed Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge (with a thesis was on quantum rate-distortion theory) and the highly, highly recommended MSc in Quantum Fields and Fundamental Forces (this time my thesis was on zeta function regularization) at Imperial College London from where I also hold a BSc degree in math.
