Biografía

I started my research career as a B.Sc. in Biology at University of Carabobo (Venezuela), and currently I am finishing a Ph.D. in Biophysics and Computational Biology at University of Valparaíso. My research interests are focused on the effect of neuromodulatory systems in shaping the global brain dynamics, and how alterations in neuromodulation could lead to the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. I studied the brain using mathematical models, tools from graph theory and computational neuroscience. My participation in BrainLat consisted into model and analyze brain activity from different sources (e.g., EEG and fMRI) in neurodegenerative disorders; the aim is to find biophysical mechanisms behind the pathological alterations in the brain and identify biomarkers that might help to the diagnosis of disorders and also with the treatment of patients. The interdisciplinary research, carried out in the BrainLat Institute, can build a bridge between the more theoretical side of neuroscience with clinical and real-world applications.
