How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I obtained a PhD degree in Statistics at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2021. I completed a Master in Applied Statistics at Universidad de Concepción in 2012, and a Teaching degree in Math and Computer Sciences at Universidad Católica del Maule in 2009. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Millenium Nucleus on Intergenerational Mobility: From modelling to Policy, MOVI. Additionally, I am a researcher of LIES, an Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Social Statistics.
To assess the predictive capacity of selection tests is a challenge because the response variable is observed only in selected individuals. In this paper we propose to evaluate the predictive capacity of selection tests through marginal effects under a partial identification approach. Identification bounds are defined for the marginal effects under...
We define the concept of Global Marginal Effect as the marginal effect observed through the conditional expectation of a partitioned population. The related mathematical expression is characterised by the law of total probability and is shown to be a function of the independent variable. We discuss on the interpretation of the new measure of global...
Multiple vaccines against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) have been evaluated in clinical trials. However, trials addressing the immune response in the pediatric population are scarce. The inactivated vaccine CoronaVac has been shown to be safe and immunogenic in a phase 1/2 clinical trial in a pediatric cohort in China...
Background Multiple vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 have been evaluated in clinical trials, but very few include the pediatric population. The inactivated vaccine CoronaVac ® has shown to be safe and immunogenic in a phase 1/2 clinical trial in a pediatric cohort in China. This study is an interim safety and immunogenicity report of a phase 3 clinical...
Heavy metal contamination causes significant environmental problems around the world and poses a threat to human health. Poplar hybrids present features for potential uses in phytoremediation systems in areas with heavy metal contamination. The purpose of this study was to assess the copper (Cu) accumulation level in five poplar inter-species hybri...
To develop statistical modelling tools for assessing the predictive capacity of the admission tests under less restrictive assumptions than the ignorability one.
