I train and provide technical support for researchers at Open Ephys. My focus is on open source tools for behavioral neuroscience: hardware and software for electrophysiology and neuronal imaging acquisition in freely behaving animals, as well as for behavioral recording and control.
I love crafting interactive activities to demo tools and concepts for workshops and scientific events, and strive to disseminate knowledge inclusively and accessibly, focusing on new users and language barriers.
I started volunteering and developing open science initiatives because I am passionate about teaching people new tools to help solve their problems and encouraging others to learn. One of my proudest moments was organizing workshops and a week long online course with fellow graduate students to bring open source to our side of the world, in Spanish. You can learn more about Talleres Open Source and use the course materials. We sent kits to 25 students from 8 countries across Latin America, and also had more participants follow the talks and recorded lectures.
Previously, during my PhD at the Dynamical Systems Laboratory (UBA-CONICET, Argentina), I studied the neural coding of song production using extracellular electrophysiology. I built custom lightweight microdrives and used microwire tetrodes to record single-unit and LFP activity during song in canaries. You can check out my work and outreach on bioacoustics and sound visualization below.
Besides working in this space, I enjoy going to the beach and exploring the outdoors, cooking and trying new food, tinkering at home and live music.
