I'm a physicist working in public health, specially interested in using machine learning and natural language processing to prioritize patients in hospital waiting lists and to understand the connection between obesity and food sales. I currently divide my time as an adjoint professor in the Faculty of Medicine - Center for Medical Informatics and Telemedicine (CIMT), and as a scientists in the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM) at the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, both at the University of Chile.
CV and publications
I hold a PhD in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge in the UK under the supervision of Ray Goldstein, and I have a Masters and Bachelor degree in Physics from the University of Chile, supervised by Rodrigo Soto. I stated working in mathematical modeling in health during my postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Public Health School, working at the Global Obesity Prevention Center.
