I am from Mexico where I obtained a bachelor's degree in Mathematics at the University of Sonora, and a medical doctor degree as an Internal Medicine specialist at the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition Salvador Zubirán/National Autonomous University of Mexico (INCMNSZ/UNAM).
I joined the UW Biostatistics graduate program in Fall 2019, and I am currently working as a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Lurdes Inoue. We are applying meta-regression techniques in a Bayesian survival framework to perform meta-analyses of clinical trials to evaluate the benefit of cardiac resynchronization therapy among different subgroups of patients with heart failure. We are also working in an independent research about estimation and prediction for cancer screening models using deconvolution at the individual data level.
I also collaborate with the INCMNSZ in the design and data analysis of projects regarding COVID-19, antimicrobial resistance, HIV/AIDS, cancer, and liver transplantation.
I am open to many research areas, however, the topics I find most fascinating involve Infectious Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases and Cancer. I am specially interested in statistical methods for cancer screening, clinical trials, longitudinal data analysis and causal inference.
