I’m a Chilean working and getting a Ph.D. at USC working on Statistical Computing at the Department of Preventive Medicine with with Prof. Thomas W. Valente and Prof. Paul Marjoram. I hold a MA in Economics and Public Policy from Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (Chile) and a M.Sc. in Economics from the California Institute of Technology (USA). Currently, I’m interested in social networks, developing (and implementing) new statistical methods for data analysis (and inference), statistical computing, and computational social sciences in general.
