After graduating from my PhD I was a visiting scientist in the Nuclear Theory Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory (summer of 2008). I was then a Research Associate at North Carolina State University (from 2008 to 2010), a Postdoctoral fellow in 2011 at the Institute for Nuclear Theory at the University of Washington. I moved to Germany in 2012 to join the ExtreMe Matter Institute and the Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Darmstadt Technical University as a Postdoctoral fellow. I held a Research Associate position at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics at Michigan State University during the summer of 2013, and I have been at the University of Guelph since 2013.
I have been a lecturer at several institutions, including: Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Universidad de Los Andes, Indiana University, the University of Washington, and the University of Guelph. I have also been employed at the International Center of Physics at the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, and developed Tsunami simulations at the Pacific Center for Pollution Control in Tumaco, Colombia.
