Who am I?

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arizona. I am interested, in general, on the areas where there's a solid intersection between computer science and applied mathematics such as: Machine learning, computational statistics, artificial intelligence, etc.

My current research focus is on applications of machine learning for multi-hop inference with data acquired from machine reading: information retrieval and information extraction, supported by multiple natural language processing techniques.

I am also a software developer. Throughout my professional career I have worked on multiple projects for cloud, desktop and mobile platforms. These days I mostly code on Scala and Python, but am also proficient with C, C#, Java, R and to a lesser extend with Matlab and JS.

Currently, I am a contributor to the REACH information extraction system and am building a SARSAmora, a reinforcement learning library natively written in Scala.
