Biography:

Simón Rodríguez Santana holds a degree in Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid, a Master's in Theoretical Physics, and a PhD in Mathematical Engineering, Statistics, and Operations Research from the Complutense University of Madrid. As a researcher, his work focuses on the development of new techniques in probabilistic machine learning and statistics, combining the Bayesian perspective with the usual language of machine learning to solve real-world problems such as drug discovery, adversarial risk analysis, and time series prediction. He has published several high-impact articles in prestigious international journals and conferences, and has also participated in various national and international research projects, serving as principal investigator on two industrial projects. He is currently a professor at the School of Engineering (ICAI) at Comillas Pontifical University, where he is a tenured professor of courses in the degree program "Mathematical Engineering and Artificial Intelligence" and has supervised bachelor's and master's theses. He holds a PAD accreditation from ANECA and has been a visiting scholar at Aalto University (Espoo, Finland).
