I am a research assistant at CONICET (National Scientific and Technical Research Council) and I am part of the Department of Research in Basic Cognitive Processes at the University of Buenos Aires led by Professor D. I. Burin. Among other things, I study the development of cognitive skills in children, especially working memory, mathematical skills and text comprehension.

I am a specialist in statistics and I believe the expansion of this area in the field of psychology and related sciences is of great importance.

I am also a teacher at undergraduate and graduate programs in different universities, where I teach courses and seminars on cognitive psychology, neuropsychology and statistics. Since 2020, I am a R Studio certified trainer.

Aug 2013 – Mar 2017 Buenos Aires, Argentina
I studied different basic mathematical abilities as manifestations of a more general mathematical cognition and their association with domain-general processes as processing speed, verbal and visuospatial working memory in 4- to 6- year old children. The objective was to identify the underlying cognitive processes of mathematical cognition in children of this age.
