Hello my name is Leon Felipe Palafox Novack.

I'm very passionate about Machine Learning, Bayesian Inference and their applications in the real world. As you can see, most of my research has been focused towards trying to apply ML to other areas, where the use of these techniques can greatly influence and help move forward the state of the art.

I'm also very interested in Astronomy and Economy, and I'm really open if anyone has any interesting project concerning any of the two topics and wants to do some joint work.

Among my interests are Bayesian Inference to detect networks of topics. Bayesian Networks, Latent Time Series Models, like Kalman Filters and HMMs. Non-Parametric Bayesian Methods are also one of the things I really enjoy doing.

I recently started doing some Deep Networks, and development in Matlab and Python. 

If you are interested in some of my code, please take a look at my Github repository.

"Even apart from the instability due to speculation, there is the instability due to the characteristic of human nature that a large proportion of our positive activities depend on spontaneous optimism rather than mathematical expectations, whether moral or hedonistic or economic. Most, probably, of our decisions to do something positive, the full consequences of which will be drawn out over many days to come, can only be taken as the result of animal spirits—a spontaneous urge to action rather than inaction, and not as the outcome of a weighted average of quantitative benefits multiplied by quantitative probabilities"
