Hello! I'm a physicist working in public health, especially interested in using machine learning and natural language processing to solve key problems. My research focuses on clinical text mining and patient prioritization. I also lead projects with the industry. I am an academic at the Catholic University of Chile with a joint appointment between the Department of Computer Science and the Institute for Mathematical Computing. I am also a researcher at the Center for Mathematical Modeling (CMM), the Millenium Institute for Foundational Research on Data (IMFD) and the Institute for Intelligent Healthcare Engineering (iHealth). The webpage of my group is pln.cmm.uchile.cl .
CV and publications
I hold a Ph.D. 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 started working in mathematical modeling for healthcare during my postdoctoral fellowship at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Public Health School, working at the Global Obesity Prevention Center.
