Research Interests

Rule-based modelling, graph transformation systems, thermodynamics, and social-cognitive models. Also sometimes I’m interested in origin of life and theoretical organic chemistry.


2016, PhD in Informatics, University of Edinburgh.

2009, BSc in Biochemistry, University of Chile.


I grew up in Santiago, Chile, where I studied biochemistry. I taught myself programming there too. While I was working in a bioinformatics lab in Santiago I was introduced to rule-based modelling and loved it. I then decided I wanted to do a PhD on that and so I came to Edinburgh. Now I’m moving into new modelling territories in an attempt to understand some aspects of how thoughts and ideas emerge and propagate in social groups.
