I studied Veterinary Medicine and Animal Husbandry at Cayetano Heredia University in Peru (2019). I am passionate about studying infectious diseases of wildlife animals, especially those that could also impact the human population. My first experience in research was during my second year of undergraduate studies, being in charge of a field study about abortion events in Peruvian Fur Seals (Arctocephalus australis). The results of this project were presented and awarded in different national and international conferences. During 2017, I had the opportunity to spend an academic year in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science at São Paulo University in Brazil, where I became passionate about the study of infectious diseases. Also, I had the opportunity to been trained in Hector Aguilar-Carreno virology lab at Cornell University, College of Veterinary Medicine.
Currently, I am part of the Virology Unit of the Institute of Tropical Medicine "Alexander von Humboldt" (IMTAvH) of Cayetano Heredia University in Lima, Peru. My research interests are zoonotic diseases of wildlife animals, especially those transmitted by arthropod vectors.
