Background

I joined the faculty at Weill Cornell Medicine in 2016 after a brief time at Google Inc, where I worked on the development of methods and software for causal inference from massive online observational datasets. Before that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of public Health, where I worked with Michael Rosenblum on a number of projects, including methods for covariate adjustment in randomized trials with application to the MISTIE and CLEAR trials on stroke.

I graduated from a PhD in Biostatistics from the University of California at Berkeley, under the direction of Mark van der Laan. My dissertation was awarded the Erich L. Lehmann to an outstanding dissertation in theoretical statistics. 


I was born and raised in Colombia. I graduated from Universidad Nacional de Colombia with an undergraduate and an MS degree in Statistics. Outside of work, I enjoy rock climbing, running, hiking, and outdoors activities in general.
