I finished my Biology degree at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina before obtaining my PhD in Charles Gilbert lab at The Rockefeller University, USA. During my doctoral studies, I discovered that changes in sensory experience alter neuronal structural plasticity in vivo using viral vectors and two-photon microscopy. During my postdoc at the Moser lab in Norway, I studied how the brain computes space to navigate the world. I then studied social communication in birds with an emphasis on animal welfare in Richard Hahnloser’s lab at the University of Zurich and ETHZ.
Here, I am involved in coordinating the Principles of the 3Rs of Animal Experimentation (Replacement, Reduction, Refinement) within the University of Bern.
