Research Interests

I am interested in the study of numerical integrators of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) to implement Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods, and their application to imaging inverse problems and Bayesian inference.

Biographical Statement

I was born in Guayaquil, Ecuador. I obtained a bachelor degree in Engineering and a master's degree in the Polytechnic School of the Litoral (ESPOL) in 2011 and 2016, respectively. I worked as a University teacher from 2013 to 2017 teaching Single and multivariable calculus, linear algebra and differential equations. In September 2017 I started studying a master's degree in computational applied mathematics at the University of Edinburgh, and in November 2018 I got the degree of Master of Science with distinction.
