I'm a third year Ph.D student in the CISE department at university of florida. I'm part of the DSR@UF Lab directed by Dr. Daisy Wang. My research interests are database systems, knowledge bases, and data/knowledge integration.

Before joining University of Florida, I was a master student and lecturer at Universidad del Norte in Barranquilla, Colombia. My research topics included power-aware database systems, query optimization and location-based services. I was advised by Dr. Daladier Jabba.


I will be visiting the Information Sciences Institute @ USC in the 2017 summer for a research internship.

Our participation on the 2016 NIST - TAC Slot Filler Validation open evaluation got the best results!
