Biography

I am a first year (cotutelle) PhD student in Engineering Sciences with specialization in Math Modeling at Universidad de Chile and Computer Science at École centrale de Lille and Inria.

On my spare time I like to keep up with the state of the art on different areas so I will be writing about it in the post section and I’m also running a seminar every Sunday, where we discuss different topics with more researchers. Feel free to contact me if you want to participate.

I’m also a member of ICOVID Chile which is a group created by the universities of Chile, Católica and Concepción whose general purpose is to generate key indicators that best represent the situation of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

Conic Optimization on Julia

Here I will describe a bit about conic programming on Julia based on Juan Pablo Vielma’s JuliaCon 2020 talk and JuMP devs Tutorials. We will begin by defining what is a cone and how to model them on JuMP together with some simple examples, by the end we will solve an mixed - integer conic problem of avoiding obstacles by following a polynomial trajectory.

Scientific Machine Learning on Julia

Here is what I’ve learned from the WorkShop Doing Scientific Machine Learning (SciML) With Julia from Chris Rackauckas. There is also an MIT course and Workshop exercises (with solutions) by the same author about this subject that I’ve been checking out and strongly recomend.
