Here is my Curriculum Vitae
(Last updated: January 22, 2013)

I got my Bachelor's degree (2001) and `Licenciatura' (2002)
from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú.
Then I came to the University of Alberta for graduate studies.
Here I did my MSc in Mathematics (2005)
under the supervision of
Byron Schmuland,
and my PhD in Mathematics (2012) under the supervision of
Alexander Litvak and
Nicole TomczakJaegermann.
Currently I continue to work with them as a Postdoctoral Fellow.

My research deals with properties of random matrices of large dimensions.
In my dissertation I investigated estimates for the smallest singular value of
random matrices that may contain some null entries (or entries with very small variances).
This research fits within the broader context of Random Matrix Theory,
and gains vitality from a nice interplay between Probability Theory and
Geometric Functional Analysis.
