Past Activities


Besides math, I also enjoy other fun activities. In January 2009, I started running outdoors. My first running contest was the 98th. Bay to Breakers, a unique 12K traditional race and festival through the streets of San Francisco. I also ran the 99th. edition, together with my fellow members of Team C.. I hope to come back to the Bay Area in the future to run news editions (with some cool costume!), although I will miss the special 100th. edition.

In October 16th, 2016, I ran my second half-marathon, the Waterfront Half in Toronto, Canada. Congratulations to my fellow halfmarathon runner companion Sachin Gautam!

In November 23rd, 2014, I ran my second marathon in Philadelphia. Congratulations to my fellow halfmarathon runner companions: Anand Deporkar and Sachin Gautam!

In 2012, I ran my first two long distance races: the Bonn Halfmarathon and Tromsø's traditional marathon, known as the Midnight Sun Marathon. Thanks to that lifechanging experience, my adventurous companions (Lisa Wang and Sam Payne) and my wonderful hosts, I picked up on rock climbing and bouldering as well. And when the weather gets cold, I'm always eager to head to the slopes for some skiing. My favorite resort is Alta, in Utah.

Being born and raised in Argentina, I am a big fan of Argentinean tango. I am currently participating at the Columbia-Barnard tango club. We are very happy to have the great Robin Thomas as our teacher. Find tango events in New York city here. And if you are travelling to my beloved Buenos Aires, don't forget to check out Junando milongas.

During my college days, I was a member of the Compañía de las Luces, a musical group from Buenos Aires specialized in baroque music. I participated in several opera performances ("Castor & Pollux" by J.-P. Rameau, Le Burgeois Gentilhomme" and "Armide" by J.-B. Lully, and "Les Danaïdes" by A. Salieri) singing as an Alto in the choir. In addition, we sang Cantatas BWV 10 ("Mein Seel' erhebt den Herren") and BWV 75 ("Die Elenden sollen essen") by J. S. Bach, "Ich liege und schlafe" by N. Bruhns, and BuxWV 43 ("Heut triumphieret Gottes Sohn") and BuxWV 203 ("Magnificat") by D. Buxtehude. I miss those days a lot and I hope to get back to similar activities in the near future.

If I were a Springer-Verlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be W.B.R. Lickorish's An Introduction to Knot Theory.

I am an introduction to mathematical Knot Theory; the theory of knots and links of simple closed curves in three-dimensional space. I consist of a selection of topics which graduate students have found to be a successful introduction to the field. Three distinct techniques are employed; Geometric Topology Manoeuvres, Combinatorics, and Algebraic Topology.
