About me

I got my Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences at the Department of Transport Engineering and Logistics of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. My thesis was part of the BRT+ Centre of Excellence and Centro de Desarrollo Urbano Sustentable, CEDEUS. I have also worked as a professor of the Demand Modelling course. Besides, I worked in the development of the PUC – MOOC Demand Modelling course in Coursera.

My main research concerns understanding the causes and effects of public transport reliability. This reliability is specially studied in a Latin American context, where most of bus and metro services run without fixed timetables, which means users don’t know arrival times in advance. During my second Ph.D. year, I performed a 10 months external research stay in TU Delft Transportation and Planning Department as a visiting Ph.D. student. Finally, I was awarded with the “2018 Lee Schipper Scholarship Memorial Scholarship for Sustainable Transport and Energy Efficiency”, WRI Ross Center.
