Me

I am a DPhil student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Oxford. My supervisors are Alison Etheridge and Julien Berestycki.

My current research focuses in understanding how constraints affect models of population genetics in spatial continuum.

Short (Academic) Biography

I completed my undergraduate of Engineering in Mathematics and master's in Applied Mathematics at Universidad de Chile, 2012-2018, graduating with a first class Distinction in both of my titles. I specialised in Probability and its application to other problems, in particular population genetics. I have also been interested in problems related to computer science.

In July 2016 I started working with Jorge Pérez in my first research problem. It was a problem focused on modeling and understanding communications interfaces in computer science. From this work came my first paper A Formal Framework for Comparing Linked Data Fragments, that was presented in the ISWC 2017 and won the Best Research paper award.

In October 2016 I started my master thesis with Servet Martínez. The goal was to use probabilistic techniques to understand recombination in population dynamics in continuous time.I presented my thesis and graduated in January 2018, but continued working in this problem until September 2018.

In September 2018 I moved to Oxford to start my DPhil in Statistics (although I do not know any statistics).
