I’m an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Concepción. I hold Bachelors degrees in Astronomy and Computer Science from the University of Chile and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the same institution.
My research interests include machine learning, computer vision, data-science, and astroinformatics. My work is focused on developing new algorithms for massive observational data. I have worked with data from a wide variety of astronomical instruments such as ALMA, SDSS, HST, and the LSST among others. I am a founding member of the Astroinformatics Laboratory at the Center for Mathematical Modeling, and I’m currently member of the Millenium Institute of Astrophysics, where I’m developing new machine learning and computer vision algorithms for the next generation of telescopes.
