Carlos Pérez Arancibia

Assistant Professor, Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering, School of Engineering & Faculty of Mathematics, PUC Chile


Sample image I recently joined the Institute for Mathematical and Computational Engineering at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) as an Assistant Professor. I was previously Applied Mathematics Instructor in the Department of Mathematics of MIT (from Sept. 2016 to June 2018) where I mainly worked with Profs. Steven Johnson and Ruben Rosales. I received my Ph.D. in Applied and Computational Mathematics from Caltech under Prof. Oscar Bruno in 2016. Before moving to Caltech, I got a master's degree in Engineering Sciences and a bachelor's degree in Mathematical Engineering, both from PUC. My research interests include wave phenomena and electromagnetism, scientific computing, integral equations, high-order PDE solvers and numerical analysis.
