About Me

I studied Mathematics with specialisation in Pure Mathematics at the University of Santiago de Compostela, where I obtained my Master’s Degree in the Department of Algebra.

I’m currently graduate student at IMUS, where I’m pursuing since October of 2015 my PhD in History of Mathematics in the Researh Line of Mathematical Analysis under the supervision of José Ferreirós and Guillermo Curbera.  More specifically, my research is focused on transcendence and irrationality issues in the 18th and 19th centuries with special attention to J. H. Lambert’s work.

During the summer of 2018, I was visiting student in the Research Group on History of Mathematics  at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford headed by Dr. Christopher Hollings. It was an unique oportunity to consult primary sources and to give a boost to my research. Apart from my research activity, I am Teacher of Mathematics in Secondary School.

The web’s main reason for living, is to serve as common place for all works that I’m developing. In this way, I hope to facilitate the labor of those who are led for their own researches to issues that may be included on mine, given rise to a possible interchange of knowledge hopefully useful for both.

You can find these works, just as more detailed information about my academic training in CV .
