About Me

MSc. Mechanical Engineer graduated from Universidad de los Andes, Colombia. 


My area of research is the mechanical characterization and modeling of heterogeneous brittle material within crushing processes.  

Research Background

I have been involved in research  projects regarding dynamics and energy efficiency analysis on both experimental and numerical methodologies. Furthermore, I have experience lecturing on fundamentals of mechanical engineering and undergraduate thesis advisory.
