About me

My full name is Ignacio Francisco Ramirez Paulino, which I actually don’t usually use (too long). Most people call me Nacho, which is the standard nickname for Ignacio (just like Bill is standard for William).

I received my Electrical Engineer degree from Universidad de la Republica, the public Uruguayan University, in 2002 (there is no such thing as a Bachelor in Engineering in Uruguay). I received my Masters degree in 2007 from the same University, and my PhD in Scientific Computation from the University of Minnesota in 2012, under the advisory of Prof. Guillermo Sapiro, now a full professor at Duke Univesrsity.
