I received the Electrical Engineering degree and the M.Sc. degree from the Electrical Engineering Department from the University of Chile in 2017. During my M.Sc. course research I focused in developing an algorithm to allocate battery energy storage systems in order to improve power system stability. I also had the chance to work in the Energy Centre at University of Chile as a research engineer for the energy systems analysis team. During this time I focused in developing a software to assess the operational impact of incorporating photovoltaic generation to the subway system in the city of Santiago. I also worked as part-time studies engineer for the commercial and business area of Electrica Puntilla, a mid-sized energy generation company focused on renewable resources.

Currently, I am working in the Control and Power Group at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Imperial College London. My research focus in developing a methodology for fault location in distribution system, considering the dynamic behaviour of the grid. The goal is to propose a methodology that is applicable to real systems, and that can take into consideration the shift of distribution system towards more active and smart systems.

My research interests include power system dynamics, modelling and control.
