I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Costa Rica obtaining degrees in economics and in mathematics, and nearly finishing my studies in actuarial sciences (which I finished in early 2019). In March 2011, I started to work for the School of Mathematics as an Interim Professor until July 2012. I moved to Sheffield (United Kingdom) from September 2012 to November 2015 to carry out a PhD in Probability under the supervision of David B. Applebaum. I returned to the School of Mathematics of the University of Costa Rica in January 2016 as an Invited Professor. Since August 2019 I hold a permanent position.

Currently I am a member of CIMPA (Centro de Investigación en Matemática Pura y Aplicada). 

Current Grants, as Principal Investigator:

Análisis estocásticos con procesos cilíndricos. 

Past Grants:

 Ecuaciones diferenciales estocásticas en derivadas parciales en espacios de dimensión infinita.

Research Interests

I am interested in fields related to interactions between probability and functional analysis. My current research focuses on the study of probability theory and stochastic analysis driven by cylindrical and classical  Lévy processes and semimartingales in locally convex spaces, with particular attention to Hilbert spaces, Banach spaces and duals of nuclear spaces.
