What I doIn the Morgridge College of Education (DU), I lead the Health Disparities Research Lab. I am also passionate about teaching and believe that the classroom can be a uniquely transformative space where students learn to connect theory and practice through experiential learning.
I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have lived in the United States since 2007. I received my doctoral degree in counseling psychology from the University of Florida in 2016. My pre-doctoral internship was at Harvard Medical School. I have been a faculty member in the Counseling Psychology Department, at the University of Denver (DU), since 2016.
