Ignacio Segovia-Dominguez

Ignacio Segovia-Dominguez is a visiting scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech, and a research associate at the University of Texas at Dallas, developing novel methods to model and predict behaviours of time evolving objects, e.g. dynamic networks, with applications to infectious diseases, e.g. COVID-19, transportation, wildfires, and other related topics. He participates in a number of collaborative research projects with universities across North America.

His research interests include topological and geometric methods in statistics and machine learning, analysis of complex dynamic networks, evolutionary computation, and computational statistics. Dr. Ignacio Segovia-Dominguez received his master’s and doctoral degrees from the Department of Computer Science at the Center for Research in Mathematics (CIMAT) in Guanajuato, Mexico. Additionally, his broader research agenda spans machine learning, optimization, and statistical foundations of data science.
