Personal profile

Professional Information

I am a biologist and PhD from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. I live in Chile since 2005, working in research in the area of nutrition, metabolism and reproductive biology. I worked for 14 years at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, participating in research projects, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and academic activities. Since November 2019 I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad de los Andes, carrying out research, teaching and management tasks at the Center for Biomedical Research and Innovation. I direct the laboratory of Nutrition, Metabolism and Reproduction Laboratory. Its main aim is to understand, from a biomedical perspective, the influence of different aspects of maternal nutrition and metabolism on reproductive biology. We study both the physiological processes and the pathophysiological mechanisms that explain the impact of certain maternal conditions on reproduction. Our main studies are focused on the influence of adverse lipid and glucose metabolisms and of subclinical micronutrient deficiencies on female fertility and pregnancy outcome. We are also interested in understanding fetal programming due to malnutrition.
