About me

I am a PhD student working at the intersection of reinforcement learning, optimal control and process systems engineering, supervised by Antonio del Rio Chanona. Curiosity driven, usually by applied mathematics and computer simulations!

Previously, I worked in data science and software engineering within the energy and food industries in Mexico. I have a background in theoretical and computational physics.
