Matías Altamirano


I’m a PhD Student in Statistical Science at UCL supervised by Jeremias Knoblauch and François-Xavier Briol. My research focuses on robust Bayesian methods in time series models.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked as a research engineer at Center of Mathematical Modeling - Universidad de Chile, using data science and stochastic modeling to different projects.
