Computing and Information Technology

My main research focus on data science area that involves data and process models, database management, bioinformatics, neuroinformatics, sentiment analysis and images analysis. The projects in which I am currently involved are: - Application of convolutional neural networks for the detection and counting of eucalyptus trees through RGB images. - Analysis of import data of antibiotics present in the veterinary market of Paraguay. - Predictive model to identify the desertion of students at the Universidad Católica Nuestra Señora de la Asunción. - Imaging data management for neuroscience experiments. - Dynamics of Covid19 in Paraguay.
