My taste for biology and science led to my initial training as a Professor of Biology and Natural Sciences, and the chances of fate later led me towards computing. After many wanderings, I returned to biology partly through computation, and then in a purely social field.

I have worked as a Research Assistant, Data Analyst and Data Scientist in the health area at the University of Chile from 2014 to 2019. Especially with complex and heterogeneous data, carrying out exploratory analysis and outlayer detection, regression analysis, clustering, multivariate analysis and others.

Along with the above, the last 5 years as coordinator of software projects under agile environments using tools such as JIRA, Confluence and others for the agile management of software projects. Management of business process modeling in BPMN tools and automation of data processes with KNIME and other reporting tools.
