I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics of the Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María, and member of the AM2V research group.

My research interests lie primarily in the area of **applied
statistics**, **inference functions**,
including **longitudinal data** under non-normal
distributions and **influence diagnostics** as well
as the computational implementation of such techniques. Recently, I have also become interested
in **spatial statistics**.

This book is about how to assess the correlation between two spatial processes. The book describes several different scenarios in which the correlation between two or more sequences is computed. This includes, for instance, useful material for people interested in spatial statistics, time series and image analysis.
