My PhD thesis focused on developing a data-driven network model of the labour market to understand the impact of automation and COVID-19 on employment. I also studied global financial contagion in multilayer networks when I was a research intern at the International Monetary Fund.
Before starting my PhD, I did my BSc in Physics at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) 2011-2016. I was a research intern at Imperial College London, where we worked on trade networks, and at Ryerson University, where we studied the robot crawler problem. I also had a taste of the world outside academia when I worked as a data scientist: One summer in Inno-ba and then a few months in Pondera.
When I am not coding, studying or getting my hands dirty with some pen and paper, I love doing sports and enjoy having dinner or drinks with friends and coworkers. Occasionally, I’ll be dancing Salsa on a Friday night.
Football is my favourite sport. I played for the Oxford University’s Futsal team and for the 2nds Football team. I also enjoy a casual table tennis game and organising sport events for Balliol College MCR (I was MCR sport officer 2017-2018 and 2019-2020).
