En la Universidad Austral estudié Licenciatura en Ciencias Biológicas (2003-2007) y mi formación doctoral fue en la Universidad de La Frontera (2011-2016). He desarrollado una línea de investigación relacionada con la ecología microbiana, la biología molecular aplicada y la interacción suelo-planta-bacterias. Durante mi tesis doctoral, estudié la diversidad de comunidades bacterianas en micrositios de la rizosfera de ryegrass (Lolium perenne var. Nui) cultivados en un Andisol, serie Freire y Piedras Negras. Además, ésta tesis me permitió realizar dos pasantías internacionales en la Universidad de Florida, Estados Unidos y en la Universidad de Kyoto, Japón. Durante estas experiencias, adquirí experiencia en el uso de técnicas moleculares modernas como pirosecuenciación, DGGE y PCR cuantitativa (qPCR). Además, participé como autora y coautora en publicaciones relacionadas con mi línea de investigación, la ecología microbiana. Durante 2017-2020 ejecuté un proyecto Postdoctoral FONDECYT no. 3170505 titulado “”The influence of physical and chemical properties in Ñadi soils under different land uses on the structure and function of Nitrogen-transforming bacterial communities””. A la fecha, soy co-investigadora en el FONDECYT Regular no. 1191057 titulado ” Assessing the effect of the physicochemical quality of a volcanic ash soil on pasture productivity and soil”. Además, soy investigadora principal del proyecto titulado “Unraveling the influence of anthropogenic intervention on bacterial communities and nutrient cycling related to GHG emission from wetlands” CEHUM 2019-06.

I studied Bachelor Biological Sciences at Universidad Austral (2003-2007) and my doctoral formation was at Universidad de La Frontera (2011-2016). I have developed my lines of research relational at microbial ecology, applied molecular biology, soil-plant-bacteria interaction. During my doctoral thesis, I studied the diversity of bacterial communities in microsites of ryegrass (Lolium perenne var. Nui) rhizosphere grown in an Andisol, Freire and Piedras Negras series. Moreover, allowed me to perform two international internships at the University of Florida, USA and Kyoto University Japan. During these experiences, I acquired expertise in the use of modern molecular techniques such as pyrosequencing, DGGE, and quantitative PCR (qPCR). Also, I participated as an author and coauthor in publications related to my research line, microbial ecology. During 2017-2020 carried out a FONDECYT Postdoctoral no. 3170505 entitled "The influence of physical and chemical properties in Ñadi soils under different land uses on the structure and function of Nitrogen-transforming bacterial communities". To date, I am co-research in FONDECYT Regular no. 1191057 entitled "Assessing the effect of the physicochemical quality of a volcanic ash soil on pasture productivity and soil". Moreover, I am carrying out as principal researcher the project title "Unraveling the influence of anthropogenic intervention on bacterial communities and nutrient cycling related to GHG emission from wetlands" CEHUM 2019-06
