Andrés is a final-year PhD student at Universidad de Chile and is advised by José Correa and Paul Dütting. Previously, he graduated as a mathematical engineer and an MS in Operations Management, also at Universidad de Chile.

His research is focused on the interplay between optimization and incentives, this is, situations where the outcome depends on the actions of strategic agents. He is particularly interested in allocation problems with a dynamic aspect, where decisions are made on the fly. He also often considers data-driven approaches, in which decisions are directly made using observations rather than standard distributional assumptions. Modern platforms like routing apps, online advertisers, and online marketplaces face these challenges on a daily basis, and his work is centered on understanding the fundamental aspects that drive decision-making in these settings.
