Research: Asymptotic statistics
Undergraduate: University of Maryland
Hometown: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Why did you choose to come to AMSC?
I liked the AMSC program for its flexibility--I wasn't sure what

What are your favorite parts of the greater Washington DC area?

river. It leads to Georgetown which is one of the nice parts of DC
with a harbour and a view of the Kennedy Center.
What advice would you give to incoming students?
I would like to give incoming students the same advice that my AMSC
student mentor gave me--get to know a few other graduate students taking
the same classes and qualifying exams as you and help each other out. You
can learn a lot from other graduate students. Upper level graduate
students are also usually very happy to help and to give you advice on how
