About me

Hi! I am a graduate student at MIT advised by Philippe Rigollet. I obtained my B.Sc. (2016) in mathematics and electrical engineering from Universidad de los Andes. I was a data scientist at Quantil in 2016 and a research intern at Truveta in the summer of 2022. I spent several summers working at MathRoots as a coordinator, mentor and counselor.

Research interests

I am generally interested in the applications of Riemannian geometry (in particular information geometry) and optimal transport to problems in optimization and machine learning.
