Currently, I am pursuing my doctoral studies at the Data Science Group at the Computational Social Science Department at GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, under the supervision of Markus Strohmaier. My research is focused on analyzing attributed networks to understand and explain edge formation using Bayesian inference.

In 2011, I decided to start a master's program, that is why I moved to Germany for pursuing my Masters at "Universität des Saarlandes" (Saarland University) where I specialized in data mining and information retrieval. In 2013 I joined the "Max Planck Institute for Software Systems" (MPI-SWS) for working on my Master's thesis under the supervision of  Krishna Gummadi. My experience at the MPI-SWS was very enriching. I worked together with other people who taught me how to become a better researcher, speaker and colleague.

Previously I got my Bachelor's degree (Engineer in Computer Science) at "Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral" (ESPOL) where I basically balanced my studies in software / hardware and theoretical / practical computer science. During this time I learned how to work under pressure and deadlines. I also joined "Centro de Tecnologías de Información" (CTI) where I worked as a research assistant and collaborated in several projects: such as SIDWeb (e-learning), Polimático (e-government) and miESPOL (social network / bachelor's thesis) supervised by Xavier Ochoa.
