I studied applied Mathematics at ITAM (Mexico), after working for two years in marketing research I moved to Ann Arbor to get a master degree in Statistics at the University of Michigan, with the support of a Fulbright scholarship. As a master student I received the Outstanding Applied Masters Student in Statistics Award (2012-2013) and a tuition waiver to attend the Summer Program for Survey Statisticians at the Institute of Social Research, where I also worked as research assistant with professor James Lepkowski. Upon completing my degree I returned to Mexico and joined Mexico’s government agency for biodiversity where I do data analysis using R on a daily basis. I also work as lecturer in Statistics at ITAM’s master’s in Data Science. Finally, I am an active member of the Mexican R community, I am co-founder and co-organizer of R-Ladies Mexico City, we started in 2017 and we keep growing! I also volunteer in R events of the Mexican Bioinformatics Community.
