Welcome to my web page. This page has professional information about myself. I received my first degree and Mathematical Engineering degrees from the University of Concepción, Chile, sometime in the last century. In 1997 I moved to Paris to do my studies for a degree of Docteur en Sciences, which I got from Paris Dauphine (Paris IX) University in 2002. Then, I moved back to Concepción to take a position of Assistant (and then, Associate) Professor until 2007, when I made my last (so far!) move to the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland, where I am a Senior Lecturer in Numerical Analysis.


My main research interest is the numerical analysis of partial differential equations. More specifically, I focus on finite element methods for fluid mechanics, especially on stabilised, multiscale, and physically consistent finite element methods.
