About Me

With a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, accumulated experience in performing Quantitative Risk Analysis for Oil Refineries' licensing projects, expertise in Human Reliability Analysis research and applications and autonomous systems safety, I am passionate about developing, adapting, and applying risk assessment methods to contribute to a safer world.


As a Research Scientist at UCLA, I manage and conduct research projects on complex systems modeling, risk assessment, and human reliability. 

You can always find me in my office - unless I'm biking around L.A, or looking for the newest vegan bakery in town.
