My name is Mauricio Monsalve. I am currently doctoring in Computer Science at the University of Iowa, currently working on my dissertation. I am currently part of the Computational Epidemiology (compepi) group. (Computational epidemiology is described in this paper.) My advisor is Sriram Pemmaraju, whose specialties lie in approximated and distributed algorithms and in theoretical computer science. He is also part of the compepi group.

Background: I hold two MSc degrees in computer science, one awarded by The University of Iowa and the other awarded by La Universidad de Chile. I am a foreign student from Chile. My advisor in Chile was Claudio Gutierrez, whose specialties lie in discrete mathematics, databases, logic, the semantic Web, and the history of science.

Human-subjects certification: I have approved Citi Program's training in biomedical (IRB-01) and socio-behavioral (IRB-02) human subjects research.
