About

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where I obtained my Ph.D. in Physics at the Universidad de Buenos Aires in 1992. Then I moved to Porto Alegre, Brazil, as a Postdoc at the Instituto de Física of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, where I became Professor in 1997. I have projects of cooperation with Chile (Facultad de Física, Pontificia Universidad Católica), Argentina (Statistical Physics, Centro Atómico Bariloche), and USA (Consortium of Americas for Interdisciplinary Science of the University of New Mexico).
