About Me

I have experience writing in multiple genres (news, features, interviews, investigation, essays), both freelance and in the newsrooms of major media outlets. I write mainly about health, education, human rights, diversity, social vulnerability and life stories.

I have participated in two journalistic investigations that have won national and international awards: "Abusos sexuales en la Iglesia católica argentina" (Sexual Abuses in the Argentinean Catholic Church) and "El cementerio donde las tumbas por fin tienen nombre" (The cemetery where the graves finally have a name).

I have a solid background in IT and I completed an MA in Data Journalism at Birmingham City University with a Chevening Scholarship from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
