Brief bio
I am an associate professor at the Mathematics Department of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).
My research interests lie in Discrete Mathematics, more concretely enumerative and bijective combinatorics, and matroid and graph theory. Some common keywords in my work are: Tutte polynomial, transversal matroid, lattice path, lattice path matroid, generating function, bijection, pattern, spanning tree, cyclic flat.
My PhD advisor at UPC was Marc Noy and the title of my dissertation was Graphs and matroids determined by their Tutte polynomials. (Available here.)
From October 2003 to July 2006 I was a postdoc at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford and at the Department of Applied Mathematics of Charles University in Prague. I got back to UPC in the fall of 2006, first as a "professor lector" (assistant professor) at the CS department, later as a "Ramón y Cajal" research fellow in the Mathematics Department and since July 2008 as an associate professor.
