About

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 a research assistant under the supervision of Dr. Lurdes Inoue. We do individual patient data meta-analyses of clinical trials to evaluate the benefit of cardiac resynchronization therapy among different subgroups of patients with heart failure.

I recently started to work with Holly Janes in how to estimate the effect of a new therapy when this was assessed in a non-inferiority trial, with emphasis in vaccines and HIV prevention trials. I also work with Ruth Etzioni in estimating the sensitivity of a cancer screening test under different scenarios.

I collaborate with the INCMNSZ in the design and data analysis of projects regarding COVID-19, antimicrobial resistance, HIV/AIDS, cancer, and liver transplantation. I also collaborate with Mexicans in Statistics and Health, a group of graduate students in the US with ties to Mexico committed to explain complex scientific issues in everyday language.

I am open to many research areas, however, the topics I find most fascinating involve Infectious Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases and Cancer. I am especially interested in statistical methods for clinical trials, cancer screening, longitudinal data analysis and causal inference.
