Profile

Biography

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.

Research

Overview

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.
