I got my degree on Electrical Engineering at the National University of La Plata (UNLP), La Plata, Argentina, in 2015. That same year I joined the Center for Computational Imaging & Simulation Technologies in Biomedicine (CISTIB), where I began my PhD on biomedical engineering under the supervision of Prof. Alejandro Frangi and Dr. Jose Pozo.

Complementary to research, I have been involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and I have also co-supervised MSc. students. For a list of my publications please visit my Google Scholar profile: 

Research interests

My main research area is Diffusion MRI (dMRI), where my focus is on biophysical tissue models for brain white matter. Currently, I am investigating the advantages of the use of novel diffusion MRI encoding and modeling schemes to improve the specificity of dMRI measurements to features of tissue microstructure. We are in tight collaborations with the Leeds Institute for Cardiac and Metabolic Medicine (LICAMM) from the School of Medicine.
