Department of Sociology
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 Master's studies, I worked as a clinical psychologist in different public service programs and the private sector. I also worked as an assistant in academia linked to a project related to education and capitalism in vulnerable neighbourhoods.
Although I worked professionally 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 developing the line of emotions from a social perspective in the Latin American context.
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.
