Using Topological Data Analysis (TDA) and data sets of the immune response during COVID-19, we employ here the mapper algorithm to simplify and visualize high dimensional data sets. Persistent shapes of the simplicial complexes of the data are observed. While the algorithms in TDA can bring important information, the computational study of the simplicial complexes remains unknown and is going to be discussed in this talk.

Esteban was born in Mexico. He moved to Ireland to pursue his PhD in Mathematics at the Hamilton Institute, NUI, Ireland. After completing his doctoral studies in 2011, he continued his research as a postdoctoral fellow (2011-2014) at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Braunschweig, Germany. In Summer 2014, he founded the research group of Systems Medicine of Infectious Diseases at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research. In March 2017, his research group was relocated to the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Since January 2020, he is also Professor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Additionally, he was an adjunct lecturer at the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, as well as a visiting scholar at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Universidad de Guadalajara, and CentraleSupelec.
