Career Highlights

Teaching Interests

I enjoyed teaching various courses from elementary Physics to advanced courses. Usually, I teach courses of Mathematics for Physicists.  Also, I taught courses for postgraduate students in various summer schools.


In the last few years, I am working in the interface between Conformal Field Theories and Holography. I have a continuous interest on different topics in Quantum Field Theory and some aspects of Cosmology.
