About me

Welcome! My name is Diego and I am a Ph.D. candidate in Technology and Social Behavior at Northwestern University.

Searching for interdisciplinary paths, I started my Ph.D. at Northwestern University in 2016. My program intersects knowledge in Computer Science and Communication. Currently, I am working at the SONIC Lab with Prof. Noshir S. Contractor. My research interests are Social Networks AnalysisTeam formation, Teams, Natural Language Processing, and Computational Journalism.

Once I graduated with my Masters in Computer Science and Major in Industrial Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), I started my academic career as Instructor and later as Adjunct Assistant Professor at the PUC’s School of Communication. Since then, my research experience has been grounded on management, communication, and computer sciences.

For more than 4 years, I taught courses on web technologies and social networks. Additionally, I have been part of research projects related to social network analysis, social media, team formation systems, and computational tools for journalists.
