Ph.D. in Biological Sciences, University of Warwick, United Kingdom (2000-2005). Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Warwick, United Kingdom (2005-2007) and the University of Manchester, United Kingdom (2007-2010). In 2010 she returned to Argentina as a researcher for the National Scientific and Technical Research Council (CONICET), and worked at the Behavioral Genetics Laboratory, Leloir Instituter (2010-2014). In 2014 she joined the Neuroscience area of IBioBA, where she was the Project Leader of the Neurobiology of Sleep project. Since 2021 she was selected to become Group Leader.
