I joined the lab as a PhD student in August 2020. I am a Psychologist and Master in Psychology from Bogotá, Colombia. My main research interests are related to the study of the mechanisms and modulators of behavior and memory consolidation, as well as the effects of stress on cognitive processes. My current research at the lab focuses on the behavioral characterization of different mouse lines with hyper-activating mutations of the Ras/Raf pathway in GABAergic interneurons, posteriorly aiming to analyze the intracellular signaling mechanisms associated with such behavioral phenotypes.
