I am a Faculty Member at the Complexity Science Hub, working on violence, mobility, migration and urban dynamics. I work for the OECD and for the World Bank, where I am doing a spatial and demographic analysis of African cities. I am the Scientific Advisor of Aleph.

Before, I was at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford / UCL CASA, working on urban dynamics at the Peak Urban project. I earned an MSc in Statistics and a PhD in Maths and Security and Crime at University College London UCL.

I worked in the Emergency Attention Centre from Mexico City (C5) as Director of Strategic Analysis. My work consisted basically of crime forecasting and police and resource allocation.

I am very interested in Science communication. When I was an undergraduate student, I directed Laberintos e Infinitos, a Maths magazine. When I started my PhD at UCL, I founded Chalkdust, a Mathematics magazine. I also founded Punto Decimal MX, a science communication website. In total, I have published 11 editions of a maths magazine, with nearly 30,000 printed copies and edited nearly 500 articles by more than 200 authors.
