I was born and raised in Panama. After working in microfluidics and tissue engineering, I decided to get busier with computers and data. As such, I am a student in the Quantitative and Systems Biology master’s program.

I am currently working to cluster clinical courses of severe pneumonia patients using their electronic health records and integrating those records with the Human Phenotype Ontology. I am also interested in improving automated diagnosis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) using machine learning on radiologist reports, with the aim of assessing clinician recognition of ARDS.
