I am interested in aging and mental health topics. Specifically, I am involved in projects related to 1) the evaluation and design of treatments to improve healthy longevity outcomes in people with dementia and mental health conditions, with a special focus on non-pharmacological interventions, 2) understanding the effect of social determinants of health in cognitive aging and treatments outcomes in older adults. I own a Master's degree in Aging and Quality of life from the University of Chile, and a Fulbright-CONICYT Scholarship for Ph.D. studies.
