- My CV.
I am part of the Stochastic Algorithms and Nonparametric Statistics research group at the Weierstraß Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics.
I work as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the MATH+ EF1-13 project "Stochastic and rough aspects in deep neural networks", led by P. K. Friz and C. Bayer.
Previously, I was part of the Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis research group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, where I worked with K. Ebrahimi-Fard.
Before that, I obtained a joint PhD in Mathematics from the University of Chile and Sorbonne Université under the direction of D. Remenik and L. Zambotti.
Online Events:
- I co-organize the Algebraic and Combinatorial Perspectives in the Mathematical Sciences seminar (Fridays @ 15:00 CET).
- Mini-workshop: Cumulants in Stochastic Analysis.
Live events:
- TMS Summer School for young researchers between geometry and stochastic analysis. June 15--19, 20201 @ UiA, Kristiansand, Norway. Website.
- Workshop: "Noncommutative algebra, probability and analysis in action". September 20--25, 2021 @ U. Greifswald, Greifswald, Germany. More info soon.
Current Projects
