Research

I am a postdoc and instructor at the Institute of Nuclear Sciences at the UNAM. I received my Ph.D. in physics at Auburn University Physics Department. I did research work in the atomic physics group. The problems we consider are fundamentally related to the two Coulomb center (TCC) system subjected to various environments, which is physically related to diatomic molecules and quasi-molecules, as well as exotic atoms.

In 2014 - 2016 I worked in the field of nonlinear dynamics with Dr. David P. Sanders. We developed zero-finding tools using interval arithmetic, the numerical methods which operate on intervals rather than numbers, thus enabling us to obtain results which are enclosed by the resulting interval with certainty (e.g., described in this book; the author's website). We were using the modern language Julia designed for scientific computation. Using the developed tools, we studied various chaotic systems. Here is my GitHub repository.

In 2016 - 2018 I worked on a project in plasma physics with Dr. Julio J. Martinell. We performed analytical studies of transport of test particles in weak-turbulence plasmas using the much more efficient model of a mapping instead of numerical solving of differential equations.
