I am a Researcher at CONICET, Head of the Laboratory of Discrete Event Simulation, and Full-Time Assistant Professor with the Computer Science Department at the University of Buenos Aires

I received my Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering (Control) from the National University of Rosario (Rosario, Argentina) in December 2010.

During 2012 and 2013 I was a Postdoc Associate at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich), Switzerland, with the Terrestrial Systems Ecology Group (Dept. of Environmental Systems Science) and the Modeling and Simulation Research Group (Dept. of Computer Science).

Research Interests

My research is focused on integrative modeling, simulation and control of heterogeneous complex systems.

I am interested in better theoretical foundations and practical tools for developing simulation models of complex systems. In particular I develop new methodologies and software tools for building complex models systematically, by the incremental and iterative coupling of heterogeneous subcomponents (multi-domain, multi-scale, multi-physics, multi-paradigm) under a common framework, relying on principles of General System Theory. 

Some of my main current interests evolve around the following topics:
