I’m a third year Computer Science Ph.D. student at MIT, advised by Martin Rinard.
Before coming here, I completed my M.S. in Computer Science at NYU, where I worked with Dennis Shasha on implementing AQuery, an optimizing compiler for order-related database queries. Before that, I worked for Morgan Stanley as part of the housing and mortgage research group. I graduated with a B.A. in Economics from University of Pennsylvania in 2011. I’m originally from San José, Costa Rica.
My main research interests center around programming languages, databases, and data science. I’m particularly interested in applying programming language techniques to improve the way we do work in the latter two areas.
These interests include directions such as:
I’ve also worked on an assortment of other projects, such as using iOS data to customize image compression for users with color vision deficiencies, and performing large-scale color vision analysis across different countries.
