I graduated with a BSc and MSc in Astronomy from Universidad de Chile. I obtained my PhD at the California Institute of Technology, supervised by Dr. John Carpenter and Prof. Anneila Sargent, my thesis was titled “Grain Growth in Proto-Planetary Disks”. Afterwards, I worked at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory with a Jansky Postdoctoral Fellowship, and then I moved to the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie with a Humboldt Research Fellowship. Since September 2017 I have been a Professor at Universidad de Chile, where I lead an investigation group and keep collaborations with international teams.
My participation in international projects include: being part of in the ALMA Long Baseline Campaign to test the maximum resolution capabilities of ALMA, participating through an EVLA Key Science Project in the commissioning to improve and expand the capabilities of the VLA, and being co-PI of the ALMA Large Program DSHARP, co-I of the ALMA Large Program MAPS.
