I studied psychology at the Universidad Diego Portales in Chile, Latin America. Later I studied a Masters in Psychoanalytic Theory and Clinic at the same institution.
During my Masters studies, I worked as a clinical psychologist in different public service programs and the private sector. I was also linked to the academy as a research assistant in studies related to education and capitalism, among others.
Although I worked professionaly in the clinical area, my concerns were always linked to questions and theories related to social psychology. That's why I decided to do my PhD in sociology and establish a dialogue between macro-social and micro-social approaches.
I am currently dedicated to my doctoral thesis and to developing the line of emotions from a social perspective.
Currently, my line of research is related to the exploration of the account of the emotional work of Chilean professionals linked to their work and couple relationships. I seek to understand the role that emotions play in Chilean society through the daily experience of the professionals of the country.
