I am a third year Ph.D. student in Statistics. I did my undergrad degree in Applied Math and Computer Engineering at ITAM in Mexico City. For my undergrad thesis I worked in cryptography using negative databases, where the goal was to hide the information in order to make retrieval computationally infeasible for an adversary. Now, in my Ph.D., I work in high dimensional and network data analysis, looking to retrieve information by representing the data with structures that are often computationally infeasible to fit, and we look for efficient algorithms to approximate them.

The focus of my research is statistical analysis of network data. In particular, I am working in community detection and multiple network analysis, with applications to the study of brain connectomics.

In my free time, I enjoy music, traveling and playing guitar.
