Last year, I was a postdoc in UW-Madison working with professor Bret Larget on statistical computing methods for Bayesian phylogenetics.
I did my PhD in Statistics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with professor Cécile Ané in the inference of phylogenetic networks to represent the tree of life expanded by extra hybridization edges. Understanding the evolutionary history of species is essential to conservation efforts and to discover the tree of life.
I am originally from Mexico City where I did my Undergraduate degrees in Actuarial Sciences and Applied Mathematics at ITAM.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, running, biking and yoga!
