Teaching:

I am working for two undergraduate courses: Didáctica de Algoritmos y estructuras de Datos and Programming 1, at the 8th term and the 2nd term of the program Computing Engineer respectively.

Research interests

I am a member of the Laboratory of Computing Science. My areas of interest are: Computer Science Education, Discrete Mathematics and Functional Programming.
