I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Statistics at Colorado State University, working under the advisement of Dr. Mary Meyer and Dr. Jean Opsomer. Previously, I completed my M.S. in Statistics also at Colorado State University, and my B.S. in Mathematics at Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan. Before college, I participated in national and international competitions of the Mathematical Olympiad. I earned a Bronze Medal in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
My research interests include nonparametric statistics, survey methodology, shape-constrained statistical estimation, machine learning, Bayesian methods, and extreme value theory. Currently, I am working on the development of new methodologies to improve survey estimation and inference by considering shape-restricted regression techniques.
One of the things I enjoy the most of being a statistician is working on interdisciplinary projects. I have collaborated with professionals in the fields of Biology, Microbiology, Geology, Soil and Crop Sciences, and Animal Sciences, among others. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in starting a collaboration.
