I'm a third-year PhD. Student in Complex System Engineering, co-advised by Rolando de la Cruz and Claudia Duran-Aniotz. I received my Bachelor of Science in Engineering in 2016 and my Professional Degree in Bioengineering in 2017, the first of my class. During my years of study I worked as a teaching assistant and research assistant.

Research Interests

My research interests are data science, machine learning, bioinformatics, and biomedicine. I am motivated by interdisciplinary collaboration to generate impact in multiple disciplines and industries.

My goal is to solve the problem of the use of machine learning with longitudinal biological data, where there is currently no solution, especially for the prediction of Alzheimer's disease based on miRNAs, so that by enriching the model with a representation that rescues the longitudinal data in the multimodal machine learning algorithm that integrates miRNA profiles provides an improved prediction about the current state of subjects who could develop Alzheimer's, which is considered one of the greatest global challenges for health systems of the 21st century.
