MATHEMATICIAN FROM SERGIO ARBOLEDA UNIVERSITY EARNS A SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

Thanks to his collaboration in the DUNE project and to the teacher and researcher Luz Stella Gómez, Néstor Pachón, student of the Mathematics program, was invited to work and collaborate in the completion of his degree work at the University of Cambridge.

Everything started when Néstor participated in an advanced computer intelligence course for the application in the DUNE project (Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment), in Paraguay. There he met Lorena Escudero Sánchez, Ph.D. in high energy physics and a researcher specialized in the study of neutrinos at the University of Cambridge.

Thanks to her and to the great support of the researcher and teacher Luz Stella Gómez, Néstor was awarded, at the University of Cambridge, with a scholarship that the United Kingdom offers to young undergraduate, master and doctoral researchers who know about revealing and innovative topics in research and science, not only in mathematics but also in physics, chemistry and engineering. This Sergista applied Machine Learning techniques in physics problems, more specifically in the study of decay and particle movement between neutrinos.

About this new experience Néstor tell us: “I feel happy for the opportunity to know a new culture, to travel, to experiment new things. I am a little scared because this is one of the best universities in the world and I will be alone with doctors, with the best of the best. I hope to do it very well and fulfill the expectations”.

For Néstor, everything has been achieved “thanks to the DUNE project ant to the teacher Luz Stella. She sought the support of the United Kingdom and of the people directly involved in the project. She has made visible the work that has been done here at La Sergio, with the research seedbed. Things have been happening because I have dedicated myself to work with discipline and to show results”.

Néstor’s experience at the University has been very enriching, “something special in La Sergio, unlike other math faculties, is that we are a small school that allows contact between student and teacher. The camaraderie here is very productive. You can easily contact a dean or colleagues to ask for help and get it quickly, something very important to grow as a researcher and as a mathematician”, he concluded.
