I am a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Mayeda’s research group at the Department of Epidemiology, Fielding School of Public health, University of California Los Angeles. My work focuses on how to extend the target trial framework and causal inference methods to study social determinants and cardiometabolic disorders in aging related outcomes, with a special interest in selection bias and competing events. I am also an RStudio Certified Instructor.

I keep my heart close to my home in La Paz, Bolivia.
