I am currently a researcher at the LIA group. My interests are broad and include almost any topic on Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science.

I hold an Industrial Engineer degree from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and a Masters degree in Engineering of the same university, and a PhD from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (this lab).

Currently, I continue to discover the wonders of Synthetic Biology and am most interested in IbM/AbM simulation technologies and their intricacies 🙂 gro is my friend… and designing and simulating novel synthetic circuits is awesome too…

Let’s see where the Syn. Bio. path leads us…

In my former and future life, I was (and hopefully will be, again) a Computer Science Professor at Universidad Diego Portales, Chile.

I worked in EU FP7 Project PLASWIRES.
