I obtained a degree in clinical psychology at the University of Cordoba (Argentina), a PhD in social psychology and behavioural sciences methodology in Spain, and completed post-doctoral studies at the Andalusian School of Public Health. There, I conducted research on substance use and public health, and was part of a clinical trial testing pharmaceutical-grade heroin for long-term severe opioid use disorder. I moved to Canada in 2006 to join Dr. Schechter’s research program and became an Investigator on the NAOMI study, North America’s first heroin-assisted treatment trial.

My main research area is public health and substance use, with a focus on improving access to care for those with individual and structural vulnerabilities.
