I do research in exploratory data analysis and predictive modeling of infectious diseases.
My original background is in mathematics applied to the simulation of biopolymers (proteins and RNA). I obtained my PhD from the department of Mathematics at the Universidad Nacional del Sur in Bahía Blanca, Argentina, in 2002, for my work on the coarse-graining of stochastic processes to describe the folding of protein molecules (thesis pdf, in Spanish).
