About

I am a PhD student in statistics at UBC, where I also completed my MSc. My supervisors are Trevor Campbell and Ben Bloem-Reddy. I did my BSc in applied math at ITAM under the supervision of Ernesto Barrios.

Before coming to UBC, I was a business analytics coordinator at Pfizer. I also worked as a research assistant for Manuel Mendoza in the quick counts’ committee of Mexico’s 2018 general election. Check this webpage if you’re interested.

In my free time, I enjoy road biking around Vancouver, reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, and cooking fresh pasta.

Research interests

I am mostly interested in developing algorithms for Bayesian inference with theoretical guarantees that allow us to solve large-scale problems. Recently, I have also been thinking about scalable causal inference and optimal transport. I am also interested in statistical education, and particularly in finding ways to improve and expand the teaching of Bayesian statistics in the undergraduate curricula.
