Hello! I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Oxford. I’m also a research fellow at the Institute for New Economic Thinking and a research affiliate at MIT Media Lab.
My background is mainly in theoretical physics; I read Physics and Mathematics at the University of Barcelona, followed by an MSc in Physics at the University of Heidelberg. I later obtained a PhD in Astrophysics at the University of Durham.
I’m interested in any kind of problem that requires large computational resources to understand. During my PhD, I developed new numerical methods to simulate active galactic nuclei (AGN) feedback in the form of radiative winds. I’m also one of the lead developers of JUNE, a one-to-one epidemiological agent-based model of England.
Lately, I’m interested in how we can leverage machine learning tools to improve the way agent-based models (ABM) are designed, calibrated, validated, and verified.
|Nov 2, 2023||I will be visiting the MIT Media Lab for the whole month of November. Give me a shout if you want to meet!|
|Nov 2, 2023||I will be presenting at the International Conference on AI in Finance in New York a paper on calibrating differentiable financial agent-based models.|
|Jul 27, 2023||Presenting some recent work on differentiable agent-based models calibration at the Differentiable Almost Everything at ICML 2023.|
|Jun 6, 2023||I’m presenting at the BioInference 2023 Conference in Oxford.|
|May 29, 2023||I’m presenting at AAMAS 2023 in London.|
