About Me

I am a Research Scientist working on Automated Brokerage at Convoy.

I am also a recent Ph.D. graduate of Computer Science at Brown University, advised by Prof. Amy Greenwald as part of the E-GLAMOR Lab.

My research focuses on developing machine learning techniques to solve problems in mechanism design and empirical game-theoretical analysis. I also design automated bidding agents for electronic markets.

You can find my complete CV here. I used to maintain an older website with stuff previous to my Ph.D.; you can check it here.

Teaching

Fall 2020, I was a co-instructor for Artificial Intelligence at Brown University.

Spring 2020, I taught Introduction to Computation for the Humanities and Social Sciences at Brown University.

During my Ph.D., I was usually involved in some capacity (lecturing, TAing, Lab support, etc.) in Brown’s Algorithmic Game Theory class.

In the past, I have taught different Computer Science and Mathematics courses, both in my home country, Venezuela, and in the U.S. Click here for more information about these past classes.
