Works at:
CMM Data Science
Research interests:
My research lies between Statistical Machine Learning and Signal Processing, including approximate inference, Bayesian nonparametrics, spectral estimation and computational optimal transport. I am also interested on ML/SP applications to astronomy, health, and audio. At Universidad de Chile, I have taught courses of Probability, Statistics, (Advanced) Machine Learning both for the Department of Mathematical Engineering and the Master of Data Science.
