I am currently a PhD student at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and KU Leuven, advised by Professors Alvaro Soto and Marie-Francine Moens.

My main research interest is Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing, specifically on how to extend current approaches with mechanisms inspired by human language processing.

Previously, I received my master’s degree from the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana focused on machine learning and serious games.
