I was born in the south of Chile. I grew up in San Carlos, a little town close to my hometown Chillán. For undergrad studies, I moved to Santiago, the metropolis of my country. That new scenario presented me challenges and opportunities I had never faced before.
My background is in computer science and machine learning. I am an engineering and got my Masters of Science degree in machine learning from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile.
Currently, I live in Cambridge aiming to accomplish a Ph.D. at MIT.
If we spend most of our time complaining, we won't have time for enjoying the great things around us. Life has taught me to smile at everything.
I am a very enthusiastic and optimistic person. Commitment, focus, and responsibility with my dreams are my biggest strengths.
I firmly believe that the better people we are, the more we receive from the rest.
I love my mother, siblings, and friends. They make who I am.
I love people. I love the fact they can laugh. I strongly believe that, from a tech approach, I can help voiceless people by giving them reasons to smile.
My favorites hobbies are by far playing and watching sports. I like biking, going out with friends and spending time on my personal computer.
No words to describe all things my family has went through with an smile in our faces. Fan #1 of each of you.
Basically, I didn't ask for any money; I only said to the manager that I would work for them as hard and smart as I could if they gave me a meet&greet with Shakira when she came to Chile. I started these conversations around March 2016, and Shakira went to Chile in Dec 2016, and the deal worked out - I might as well write the (very) long version of the story later.
