My career in Medicine started in 2001 when I graduated from Medical School. I did my 4 year training in Internal Medicine in Castro Rendon Hospital (Neuquén, Patagonia) and then, moved to the Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires where I did my Hepatology and Liver Transplantation training (2005-2007). In 2008 I moved to Barcelona to enter the BCLC at the University of Barcelona as a pre-doctoral fellow. Upon completion of a Master in Liver Research and a Degree in Statistics, I developed my Doctoral Thesis under the guidance of Professor Bruix. My area of interest has been the development of prognostic models for patients with liver cancer and evaluation of treatment options with special emphasis in systemic therapy. Additionally, I obtained a Degree in Immuno-Oncology at the University of Navarra that has facilitated the opening of a new area of research about immune modulation and cancer emergence after antiviral treatment.

During my career focused in clinical research in liver cancer I have authored 58 manuscripts ORCID ID 0000-0002-5711-9534 with a total Impact Factor of 527.071 and an H-index=22. My current research at the BCLC is funded by competitive grants where I am the Principal Investigator and by grants and contracts where I am a main collaborator both at the national and international level. At the same time, I am responsible for the coordination of the educational events and short-term fellowship visits at the BCLC, while also being the mentor of three predoctoral trainees.

I regularly review manuscripts for the major Hepatology journals and have been member of the Governing Board of the Spanish Association for the Study of the Liver.
