About me

I am a fifth year PhD student in the Stanford Statistics Department, where I am advised by Prof James Zou from the Biomedical Data Science Department. I am also the Burt and Deedee McMurtry Stanford Graduate Fellow.

I grew up in Madrid before going to Paris where I attended the preparatory classes for Grandes Écoles (CPGE). I was then admitted to the École Normale Supérieure d'Ulm where I completed my advanced undergraduate studies in Math. I simultaneously completed a Master's in Probability Theory at Sorbonne Université (previously Université Pierre et Marie Curie) and a Master's in Machine Learning and Computer Vision (Master MVA) at Université Paris Saclay.

My current research interests relate to multiple hypothesis testing and causal inference. In particular, I work on developing methodologies for high-dimensional feature selection with statistical guarantees, and causal feature selection to build predictive models that are robust with respect to distributional shifts.
