I am a physicist-turned-biologist. I completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics at University of Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2005. In 2011, I obtained my Ph.D. in Biophysics at the Institute for Theoretical Biology from the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin working in the Laboratory of Hanspeter Herzel. From 2012 to 2016, I joined the Department of Systems Biology from Harvard Medical School to work in the Laboratory of Galit Lahav.
My work focuses on the dynamics of cell fate decision of individual tumor cells with the goal of identifying sensitive cellular states for future cancer therapies. My research combines experimental and computational techniques to understand how decisions at a single-cell level lead to their collective behavior.
My research is supported by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, the Joachim Herz Stiftung, and the Excellence Initiative from the German Research Foundation. More information about the grants that support my work can be found here.
