About Me

I'm a fourth year Ph.D. student studying Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame advised by Tim Weninger. My research is primarily focused on (temporal) graph mining and graph grammars. I'm interested in formally understanding how graphs transform and interpretable models for mining information from real-world graphs. I also have tangential interests in category theory and philosophy of mathematics.
In my spare time, I like to play music and lift weights.
I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I was born in La Habana, Cuba.

Soy un estudiante doctoral de cuarto año en el Departamento de Computación de la Universidad de Nuestra Dama tutoreado por Tim Weninger. Primariamente, investigo las redes complejas (temporales) y las gramáticas de grafos. Me dedico a formalizar las transformaciones de los grafos y investigar formas interpretables de extraer información de las redes. También tengo intereses en la teoría de las categorías y en la filosofía de la matemática.
En mi tiempo libre, me gusta tocar música y levantar pesas.
Soy bilingüe en Inglés y Español. Nací en La Habana, Cuba.
