He is an Industrial Engineer from the University of Chile and Ph.D. in Information Engineering from the University of Tokyo. Since 2008 he worked as an assistant professor and since 2020 as associate professor at the University of Chile´s Industrial Engineering Department. His current work centers on applied research in Data Science (data mining). In this multidisciplinary field, his work covers a number of different subject areas, with his main areas of interest being text mining and higher-order semantics, social network analysis, and data mining to enhance healthcare systems.
All his research activities are mainly developed with the collaboration of Chilean companies and government organizations. Some of them are the largest telecommunications companies, supermarket chains, financial institutions, hospitals and clinics, the Superintendence of Banks, the National Consumer Service, the Chilean Ministry of Health, among many others.
In 2011, he created the Research Center on Business Intelligence (CEINE in Spanish), with a 5-years collaboration contract between Movistar S.A. (telecommunications company) and the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences from University of Chile.
He teach undergraduate, master and doctoral subjects since 2008 mainly in Business Process Management with IT and Data Science methods for industrial applications. He has supervised and co-supervised more than 100 theses since 2008 mostly in the Industrial Engineering minor in Data Science and Sistems Engineering. He has more than 20 ISI indexed articles in top Q1 & Q2 journals in Data Science (Artificial Intelligence field) more than 30 international conferences in SCOPUS indexed conferences. More than U$1.5 million rised on public & privated grants for applied research. He is a reviewer for several top Web of Science indexed journals in the AI field and editor/invited editor for a few of them.
