Hello & welcome to my (brief) personal website. I’m currently Associate Professor (as of June 2017!) at the Department of Computer Science, School of Engineering, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. During 2019, I am the Director of the Grupo de Estudio Ingeniería 2, FONDECYT (Conicyt) and Treasurer of the Santiago ACM SIGCHI Chapter. My research is in human-centered computing, especially with applications for healthcare.
My research group is called HumaLab UC, and we are part of HAPLAB (Human & Process Data Science Research Lab). We are always searching for new Ph.D and Master’s students with a passion for understanding users & developing novel technologies!
I’m also involved in initiatives for women in computing: I help organize Chilewic, and I am a member of Latinas In Computing and Corporación para el Fomento de la Ciencia de la Computación en Colegios, c-100.
I have two young kids so I spend my free time chasing them, baking, traveling and (occasionally) taking pictures.
If you need to contact me, please send me an e-mail.
