I am an associate professor in the Institute for Mathematical & Computational Engineering at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile.
My research interests revolve around various aspects of applied mathematics and computational biology. Recently, my group has also been focusing on data-driven modeling and Bayesian approaches to model selection.
Curious about the header image? Here’s an article and a video about it. Some specific interests include:
- Dissipative particle dynamics and mesoscale computational modeling; see our papers on lipid bilayer membranes and DNA diffusion in nano-fluidic devices.
- Probabilistic modeling of biological processes; see, e.g., my work with collaborators on evolutionary game theory.
- Data-driven modeling and Bayesian uncertainty quantification; see, e.g., our papers on epidemics in population networks, DNA methylation, and biological micro-swimmers.
- Homogenized descriptions of oxygen transport in arterial networks and reconstructive tissue flaps.
I also enjoy working on projects pertaining to stochastic partial differential equations, stochastic homogenization, and random media.
My current research is funded in part by a Fondecyt Regular grant. Previous research has been funded by the US National Science Foundation through NSF CAREER award #1552903 and NSF CDS&E-MSS award #1521266.
Lastly, I am an associate editor for the mathematics section of Royal Society Open Science.
