About me

I’m PhD student at the Computer Science and Engineering department of Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, under the supervision of Alejandro Russo. Previously, I received a Licentiate Degree in Computer Science at the National University of Rosario in Argentina.

My research interests lie in the intersection of functional programming and software security. In particular, I’m interested in developing automatic testing tools, exploiting the statically known information of strongly typed, functional languages like Haskell.

I’m a part of the Octopi project, a platform for secure programming IoT devices using functonal programming. Additionally, I’m a collaborator of QuickFuzz, an experimental grammar fuzzer written in Haskell that discovered a bunch of zero-day vulnerabilities on web browsers and image processing libraries, among other.

I also really enjoy cooking and trying new food whenever possible. If there is something I miss from Argentina if we speak of food, they are definetely the achuras.
