Dr. Waldo Arriagada obtained his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Montreal in 2010.

Previously, he has worked as Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the College of the Bahamas and Universidad Austral de Chile. He also held a Research Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Calgary and earned a diploma in Civil Mathematical Engineering (2006) from Universidad de Chile.

Dr. Arriagada’s research focuses primarily on conformal dynamics, complex geometry, Stokes phenomenon and the problem of isochronicity. He has organized several seminars in Calgary and the Bahamas and has participated in international workshops and conferences. He has also been awarded research grants by Canadian and Chilean institutions.
