Demography, Sociology, Simulation, Data Science



Lost somewhere in Santiago, Chile

I’m a sociologist, data scientist, and social demographer studying health disparities, the criminal justice system’s consequences for health and social integration, and the link between health inequalities and genetics.

I rely on statistical and computational methods in my research, emphasizing data science, and agent-based modeling.

I received my PhD in sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Bachelors and Masters in Sociology from the Catholic University of Chile.

Currently, I am working as a Senior Researcher at the project ECHO (on health disparities). I am also an external faculty in the Master in Computational Social Science UC3M, collaborate with the Center for the Study of Justice and Society of the Catholic University of Chile, and work on different consultancy projects.
