One night, I dreamed of being a researcher, and today I’m…
Professor and researcher in psychology. Since I was young, I wanted to understand human behaviour and the functioning of the brain. How do we learn? How does memory work? This and other questions intrigued me, and after school I got the chance to study a degree in psychology. I got to know multiple areas of psychology, but it was during my doctorate, thanks to my mentor Dr. Juan Carlos Arango Lasprilla, that I discovered that the methods and data analysis in neuropsychology were my academic passion. From that moment onwards, I created different tests to measure attention, memory, and other psychological aspects. I also got to answer things such as: Does culture impact psychological tests? And the most important thing, I was able to contribute to improve neuropsychological diagnosis in patients with brain damage.
Thanks to my work as a researcher, I got the chance to write, discover new places all over the world, discover multiple cultures, and meet other fascinating and charming researchers. I enjoy my work both as a researcher and a teacher, a I learn a lot during the latter from my students.
