Profile

Biography

I am a Chilean Ph.D. candidate at CityAI Lab, TPM & CEG faculties. I am in the Department of Engineering Systems and Services, section Transport & Logistic. I have a transportation engineering background. I got my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Pontificia Universidad Cat├│lica de Chile (PUC), on predicting routes chosen by users in urban context using Bluetooth technologies. Before starting my Ph.D., I had been working as adjunct instructor at PUC in Computer Science Department and as Researcher at a Research Centre developing models to predict land uses based on accessibilities.

Research interests

My current interest is in interdisciplinary AI research, taking advantage of new data sources and AI models (e.g., computer vision, NLP) to better understand our cities. My Ph.D. research focuses on improve the current understanding of cities through visual stimuli and human perceptions. I am actively working with computer vision models and latent representation models to support urban planners designing neighborhoods and cities.
