Current research

I am currently working as a Research Technician in the Wilson lab providing support to the group studying brain asymmetry.

My main role in the lab is to contribute with the maintenance of fish stocks, create new lines of fish, pair fish and collect embryos, as well as genotype and phenotype fish lines.


2013-Present: Research technician. Steve Wilson’s research group. Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, University College London, UK.

2007-2012: PhD Student. Paula Faillace’s research group. Neurosciences Laboratory, School of Medicine, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The main focus of my research project was to study the role of extracellular nucleotides during the regeneration of adult zebrafish retina.

2005-2007: M. Sc. Student. Hebe Duran’s research group. Radiobiology Department, National Commision for Atomic Energy (CNEA), Buenos Aires, Argentina.

2000-2006: Undergraduate studies in Biological Sciences, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
