I was born in Bogotá, Colombia, but I live in Lausanne since 2008 when I moved to start my PhD at EPFL. I have been happily married since then with a beautiful Colombian woman that also follows a career in academia. I enjoy travelling a lot, visiting new places and specially trying local food and taking pictures with whatever camera I have at hand. I enjoy music in general, all kinds, but my favorites are salsa, cuban music, and latin rythms. I like dancing as well. I speak Spanish, English and French.
