Bio

> I'm a 2nd year Ph.D. student at the University of Pennsylvania, where I mostly think about optimization theory, signal processing and machine learning with Prof. Ribeiro.

Before graduate school, I spent some time at Stanford's Kundaje Lab, working on chromatin accessibility prediction and genomic motif discovery. I was also a summer intern at CERN, contributing to the CMS Open Data initiative with Dr. Lassila-Perini.

I'm originally from Montevideo, Uruguay, where I obtained a BSc. in Electrical Engineering from UdelaR . During my undergrad I was a signal processing intern at ProteanTecs , a chip predictive maintenance start-up, and before that, I was a software developer at IBM .

Some stuff I like about my country.

Mate: 1/2 Moncayo + 1/2 Baldo
My only real conversation is with this green gourd. Julio Cortázar
The uruguayan
We're kind of chill, obsessed with soccer, skeptical of authority and fixated on social welfare.
La Negra Tomasa
The best pizza in Uruguay, provably.
Jorge Drexler
No le hagas caso a tanto misterio
vos ya sabés la verdad
que no hay nada peor para esta seriedad
que tomársela en serio.
Asado
Typical Sunday meal at family gatherings.
Murga

Water is my natural environment.


Involuntarily drinking water in Punta Ballena.

Glassy morning in my favourite uruguayan spot.

Involuntarily drinking frozen, cristalyzed water.

West Santa Lucia River by the way.

Me and my uncle Ernesto, with whom I crossed the Atlantic in 2016 (not in that boat though).

In 2013, while playing for Uruguay's U-17 national team I lost 3-23 to the US. I now play at UPenn, ranked 14th in the nation.
